Francine Stock dips into The Pool Of London and talks to its star, 91-year-old actor Earl Cameron. The dockland crime drama was one of the first films to tackle the subject of interracial relationships, and Earl discusses the prejudice he faced during the war.

Iain Sinclair and Matthew Sweet chart the history of the postwar crime movie, with help from another star of The Pool Of London, Leslie Phillips.
