Join the stellar production team behind Small Axe for a look at the love letters to resilience and triumph within London's West Indian community.

Small Axe has been one of the most talked about drama series of recent years. Sharing the untold challenges and triumphs of London's West Indian community in such a truly authentic way has been a major cultural eye opener to the world and to the UK TV industry itself. Written, directed and produced by Oscar winner Sir Steve McQueen, each episode of the critically acclaimed anthology series shares the vivid stories of hard-won victories in the face of racism and intolerance. From police brutality to unofficial segregation in schooling, Small Axe shines a light on 1960s, 70s and 80s London like never before.

Join the panel as they discuss the casting, costume, screenplay, research and honest stories behind each episode of the much needed series, exploring all the elements that have been central to its success.
