Gently Northern Soul

Detective drama set in 1968. Gently and Bacchus awaken to the consequences of casual racism after a young girl is murdered at a Northern Soul all-nighter.

As Enoch Powell delivers his Rivers of Blood speech, disillusioned young people, black and white, come together to dance the night away to Northern Soul music at all-nighters. In Newcastle, their haven of equality is destroyed when a young black girl is murdered. Gently and Bacchus have their eyes opened to the shocking consequences of casual racism as racial tension spirals out of control, leaving a path of destroyed friendships, love affairs and families in its wake.
