TV: BBC2, Will Britain Ever Have a Black Prime Minister?
Posted: 14 Nov 2016

One-hour programme looking at the obstacles facing black Britons in rising to positions of power and influence. A segment of the programme is dedicated to university admissions and Oxford in particular, following Aisha, a state-educated prospective Oxford applicant from south London as she attends the university Open Days, and interviewing Cameron, the President of Oxford's African and Caribbean Society.

The programme also discusses research undertaken by Dr Vikki Boliver of Durham University (DPhil University of Oxford, Department of Sociology), which found that black students were less likely to be offered places at top universities, including Oxford, than white students who have the same predicted grades.
