Airdate: Small Axe

UK civil rights anthology from Steve McQueen will now have a linear broadcast.

UK civil rights anthology Small Axe, which has previously been available at Foxtel on Demand / Binge, will now have a linear broadcast.

The acclaimed 5 part telemovies feature John Boyega, Letitia Wright & Shaun Parkes.

The first television project from Academy Award and BAFTA – winner Steve McQueen, this series of films for television is based on the real-life experiences of London’s West Indian community. Set between 1969 and 1982, these standalone stories celebrate courage and community. From a group of activists taking on a seemingly hopeless battle against police persecution, to a teenager experiencing a blues party full of dance, danger and romance, they’re a powerful reminder of how brave individuals can spark change. Small Axe delivers a message our divided world needs to hear: even the most marginalised voices can challenge the most powerful.

Fridays at 8.30pm from May 7 on BBC First.
