BBC The Repair Shop to welcome Patrick Vernon ‘very special’ Windrush episode
The barn will also welcome social commentator and political activist, Patrick Vernon, who led a successful campaign for 22 June to be recognised annually as Windrush Day. Patrick brings with him a radiogram that belonged to late friend Eddie Noble, a Second World War veteran from Jamaica who settled in the UK after serving in the RAF.
The update was shared on social media with two photos from the upcoming episodes. The caption read: “We’re so proud to announce that the new series of #TheRepairShop will feature two very special programmes, marking both the 75th anniversary of the Empire Windrush’s arrival to the UK and the birth of the NHS.
“The series starts on June 7th at 8pm on BBC One & iPlayer.”
