First interracial kiss on British TV rediscovered

The British Film Institute has uncovered what is believed to be the earliest known interracial kiss on British TV.

You in Your Small Corner was first broadcast live on ITV in June 1962 and has not been seen on TV since.

It was rediscovered in the BFI's National Archive.

The clip will be screened to audiences at the Race and Romance on Television event at the BFI on 24 November, which is part of the BFI's Love season.
