8 Minutes and 46 Seconds: The Killing of George Floyd | Full Documentary
For 8 minutes and 46 seconds, George Floyd was pinned to the ground with a policeman’s knee on his neck. This documentary examines those terrible moments, the wave of global protest that followed, and asks whether what happened in Minneapolis will be a pivotal moment in the anti-racism movement or simply another death of a black man at the hands of a white police officer. Narrated by Idris Elba, 8 Minutes and 46 Seconds features contributions from Reverend Jesse Jackson, Malcolm X’s daughter Ilyasah Shabazz, novelist and playwright Bonnie Greer and Black Lives Matter campaigner Zellie Imani. The programme contains strong language and distressing scenes, including the killing of George Floyd.
