UKTV acquires Notting Hill Carnival doc


A Don Letts documentary celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Notting Hill Carnival has been acquired by UKTV’s Blighty.



Carnival!, made by Brassneck TV, the indie co-owned by Letts, presenter Kelly Cates (née Dalglish) and producer/director John Osborne, was picked up by distributor Electric Sky in the summer.
The doc tells the history of Europe’s biggest street party and features interviews with Sir Trevor McDonald, Jazzie B, Norman Jay, Miquita Oliver and Paul Simonon of The Clash.

It will air on Blighty in 2010.


The indie is currently in production on Strummerville, a film telling the story of the charity set up by Joe Strummer’s family and Damien Hirst in memory of The Clash frontman.
Brassneck TV’s other recent films include Hillsborough Remembered for History and Tony Christie: Going Homeand Love Music Hate Racism, both for Channel 4.
