NOTTING HILL
CARNIVAL

BBC iPlayer

Broadcast: 2014

These four short films celebrating the music, history, food and culture of Notting Hill Carnival were made exclusively for BBC iPlayer. Who Started It? is a personal journey of exploration asking who started Carnival, and when it really began. In Big Tunes Ms. Dynamite, Shola Ama, DJ Spoony, Boogie Bunch, Rampage, Toddla T and others select their top musical moments from Carnival over the years. Sound Systems celebrates the extraordinary story of an analogue force still going strong in a digital age. And Hard Food sees legendary UK rap don Rodney P asking why Britain hasn’t caught on to curry goat or ackee and salt fish like it has korma, kebab and chicken chow-mien?
