Hackney banned filming of British version of The Wire... because it stigmatised black gangs

19 posts in this topic

I was gonna watch this but not particularly bothered to be honest I dare say this wouldn't get far if they put it out independently on sale anyway.

A council banned filming of a television drama about drug crime and gangs on an east London housing estate - because it stigmatised black people.

Hackney town hall chiefs refused permission for Top Boy - billed as the British version of the U.S hit show The Wire - to be filmed of any of its estates.

The cast of the four-part Channel 4 series is almost entirely black with many roles played by first-time teenage actors.

Hackney mayor Jules Pipe vetoed filming after the council considered if the series would have a 'detrimental' effect on the area's reputation.

He said: 'Estates aren't film sets - they are people's homes.

'In this case, it was not fair on residents... having their neighbourhood stigmatised on national television as riddled with drugs and gangs.'

Top Boy, written by Northern Irish novelist and screenwriter Ronan Bennett, will be shown over four nights later this month.

It tells the story of 13-year-old Ra'Nell, played by Malcolm Kamulete, who has to look after himself when his single mother is sent to a mental hospital.

Ra'Nell tends a hydroponic marijuana farm in a council flat for his white neighbour before local criminals Dushane (Ashley Walters) and his friend Sully (Kane Robinson) start muscling into the area.

Dushane wants to be 'top boy' – to control the estate's lucrative drugs market - at whatever price, including killing rivals.

Toyin Agbetu, whose organisation Ligali campaigns against negative stereotypes of black people, told the Independent On Sunday: 'You don't have to always portray the African community as drug-dealing, gun-toting criminals.

'This isn't the time to be going backwards and focusing on these stereotypes. We don't need to perpetuate more reasons for civil unrest; there are many great stories that don't need to focus on the boy in the hood.'

Bennett has lived in Hackney for 25 years and was inspired to write the series when he saw a child dealing drugs near his home.

He did exhaustive research for two years interviewing many young people and adopting their language like 'food' for drugs, 'feds' (police) and 'foot soldiers' (drugs dealers on the street) for his series.

Director, Yann Demange, defended the drama. 'Whether one likes it or not, we're shining a light on a particular part of London and it is truthful,' he said.

I saw the ad the other day and thought I may watch it but wasn't going mad like "oh I gotta see this" I saw some of you guys comments on the other thread and I agree with you all its just played out now and this street culture ting is DEAD. would of been nice to see a more well rounded show which indicates and represents a more progressive faction of youth in the uk like uni students for example.

For example many people are graduates and many of those people can not find work maybe a show highlighting THAT kind of thing would be better I mean they could go in depth just like the wire but they could expose the fuckry of some unis with what they did with some of the loot (london met uni) highlight some of the racism in the selection of students in some unis (Cambridge and Oxford) as well as highlight the general life of a university student such as the lack of jobs, paying back uni fees, the stigma of media and humanity based degrees. That subject alone would not only grab a huge amount of people who can RELATE to it but it would also answer so many of the questions that our parents ask us which they do not get (cos they didnt go uni).

I'm off on a tangent here but I think THAT would of been a better idea but no, gangster shit is what these buffoons wanna go all out and direct a show on.

I know for a fact that a show like that would not be short of people who would do it for FREE based on sheer amount of people in media who would love to have something like that on their cv.

just a thought.

safe for that list of films.

Also Antix that's definitely a subject matter worth going deep for, the fact some of these universities have also naturally turned to profit generation as their main purpose is mad.

Even international students being let in without a proper grasp of English just for their p. Some of these unis are fucked. This is one of government's main arguments for increasing university fees however so I guess that's supposed to fix things.

I saw the ad the other day and thought I may watch it but wasn't going mad like "oh I gotta see this" I saw some of you guys comments on the other thread and I agree with you all its just played out now and this street culture ting is DEAD. would of been nice to see a more well rounded show which indicates and represents a more progressive faction of youth in the uk like uni students for example.

For example many people are graduates and many of those people can not find work maybe a show highlighting THAT kind of thing would be better I mean they could go in depth just like the wire but they could expose the fuckry of some unis with what they did with some of the loot (london met uni) highlight some of the racism in the selection of students in some unis (Cambridge and Oxford) as well as highlight the general life of a university student such as the lack of jobs, paying back uni fees, the stigma of media and humanity based degrees. That subject alone would not only grab a huge amount of people who can RELATE to it but it would also answer so many of the questions that our parents ask us which they do not get (cos they didnt go uni).

I'm off on a tangent here but I think THAT would of been a better idea but no, gangster shit is what these buffoons wanna go all out and direct a show on.

I know for a fact that a show like that would not be short of people who would do it for FREE based on sheer amount of people in media who would love to have something like that on their cv.

just a thought.

you might wanna patent that idea lol

dun know,

already typed a synopsis and done just that.
