"Horace Ové, The Black Safari, (Comedy) 1972"
Isaac Nanabeyin Simpson presents a 1972 spoof documentary for BBC2’s World about Series called ‘Black Safari’.
The film is a spoof documentary, made as part of the BBC2 World about Series in 1972 entitled Black Safari. Its theme is a safari to Britain by a group of four black African explorers and anthropologists (plus a couple of local British helpers/bearers/guides) to darkest Lancashire, ‘the Black Man’s Grave’, in an attempt to locate the centre of Britain ‘whose whereabouts are still to be determined’ It takes all the big tropes of traditional white exploration of the ‘dark continent’ and reverses them.
