The West Indies at War is a four part television series that tells the
 story of soldiers from the West Indies who fought and died in World War
One.  During the war, the men experienced discrimination at the hands of
their white counterparts and were forced into menial labour roles. Upon
their return to the Caribbean, the embittered soldiers, including Arthur
Cipriani, Uriah Butler and Norman Manley, rallied the masses against their
colonial oppressors.

Produced for the Parliament Channel, the series includes rare archival
footage and photographs, woven together with interviews from leading
Caribbean historians, journalists and writers including Professors Brinsley
Samaroo and Bridget Brereton, journalist Judy Raymond and award-winning
writers Oliver Senior and Lawrence Scott. The series also features a moving
original music score by Trinidad & Tobago composer, Francesco Emmanuel.
