Bristol bus boycott 50 years on

Fifty years after the Bristol bus boycott, BBC Inside Out looks back at the racist policies that stopped black people from working on the buses.

 

In 1963 a young black man in Bristol was refused an interview for a job on the buses because of the colour of his skin.

 

It sparked a protest which attracted national attention and ultimately led the way to the country's first ever race discrimination law.
