The series will also celebrate the cultural as well as artistic contributions of Asian Britons as well as exploring the fractious nature of white and non-white Britain and its subsequent tensions.

"The Big British Asian Summer is a wonderfully rich season of programmes from across the BBC exploring the cultural, social and familial impact of these two regions of the world coming together. From Bollywood to Sharwoods,” said Alison Kirkham, Controller of Factual Commissioning.
