Time Out says

A BBC 'Screen One' production, set in Trinidad at the time of the 1946 elections, when the vote was being extended to black Caribbeans and Indians and the call for independence was growing louder. A far from unpredictable take on the tensions wrought by racial, religious and class divisions, it focuses on a young white boy whose friendship with two local Hindustani kids is constantly being discouraged by his supposedly liberal parents. Performances, script and direction are adequate rather than inspired, though the flaws will probably be less apparent on the small screen.
