Coolies: How British Reinvented Slavery

"The slave trade was abolished over years ago, but one form of slavery continued well into the 20th century. The so-called "coolies" comprised over one million Indians who migrated to all corners of the British Empire to carry out indentured labour. In this film, which combines historical evidence and archive material, descendants of the coolies look into their past and trace the last surviving witnesses. Narrated by Sanjeev Bhaskar." http://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/282945c5976440709829b8225a6fdba4 (http://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/282945c5976440709829b8225a6fdba4)
