David Olusoga’s powerful, two part film, Britain’s Forgotten Slave Owners, on BBC2 is a documentary looking at the abolition of slavery in Britain and the extraordinary choice by the then government to compensate slave owners the equivalent of £17 billion in today’s money for their loss of ‘property’.
