Storyville "A Story of Bones" 1 November 2022: Tuesday on BBC One 11

In her role as environmental officer, Annina Van Neel learns that Saint Helena’s planned airport sits on top of a mass burial site for 325 African slaves. As part of the development, their remains were exhumed and moved into storage, with no clear plan or timeline as to what would happen to them next.

Haunted by this and her memories of growing up in Namibia under apartheid, and in spite of the opposition of local people who consider her an outsider, Annina fights for a proper memorial for these forgotten victims.
