Black Marries White (1964)

Black Marries White - The Last Barrier is a ground-breaking 1964 television documentary by Peter Morley which portrayed the experiences of a number of black and white married couples. In addition to its controversial subject material, the programme’s approach was also remarked on as, unusually for the time, it allowed the people it featured to present their stories without interference from an interviewer. In this respect, it was at the forefront of ‘reality television’.
