Injustice - too hot for TV, now out on video

Too controversial to be screened on British television, too controversial to fade away, Injustice, a documentary on black deaths in UK police custody, is now for sale on video.

As a documentary, the film is compelling but when I attended a screening last year (at the Prince Charles cinemain London), I was also struck by how tireless the film's producers had been in resisting ongoing pressure from the London Metropolitan Police Service, the Police Complaints Authority and the UK Crown Prosecution Service to shut up and go away.
