GUER­RILLA

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

WIDE­SPREAD po­lice vi­o­lence, cor­rup­tion and in­sti­tu­tion­alised racism against peo­ple of colour in 1970s London was the cat­a­lyst for sig­nif­i­cant growth of the Black Power move­ment in the city. While some char­ac­ters in Guer­rilla are no doubt based on real mem­bers of the move­ment, the pow­er­ful minis­eries, which stars Idris Elba (pic­tured) who also ex­ec­u­tive pro­duces, is a fic­tional look at what might have hap­pened had they taken up arms in their fight against the es­tab­lish­ment.
