Salaam Butetown

Salaam Butetown

Between Ourselves, BBC Wales, 1992

Somali seamen have crewed Cardiff's ships for decades - but times have changed. The ships have gone and the Somali community faces unemployment and racism. And their homeland is ravaged by war and famine.

"Impossible to return, difficult to stay - the dilemma of a race apart is played out powerfully in this film made on the streets of Butetown."
