Abstract:

Between 1970 and 1972, the Angry Brigade used guns and bombs in a series of symbolic attacks against property. A series of communiqués accompanied the actions, explaining the group's philosophy and choice of targets: autonomous organization and attacks on property alongside other forms of militant working-class action. Targets included the embassies of repressive regimes, police stations and army barracks, boutiques and factories, government departments, and the homes of senior political figures. That last group of targets in particular forced an increase on the pressure for results and brought an avalanche of police raids. From the start, the police were faced with the difficulty of getting to grips with a section of society they found totally alien. And were they facing an organization--or an idea? This BBC documentary covers the roots of the Angry Brigade in the revolutionary ferment of the 1960s, then follows both their campaign and the police investigation that culminated in the Stoke Newington Eight conspiracy trial at the Old Bailey--the longest criminal trial in British legal history. The film's extensive research among both the libertarian opposition and the police marks it as an essential study of Britain's first urban guerilla group. (74 minutes) A streaming videorecording.
