Hahaha. He surely does. It's sound systems with this kind of selection I'm hunting nowadays but in Sweden they only play either UK Roots, digital roots or the newest bashment. When was the last time they flash some Barrington Levy, Peter Metro or Paragons?! Brilliant clip, mate.

What song was it playing at 6:14?

That looks amazing - will check that later when I'm somewhere with sound. Can't remember seeing it when it was broadcast but Grange Hill used to be a massive thing when I was at school.

There was another episode of Grange Hill in which a rasta pupil had a little exhibition - I remember the dialogue being something like

HEADMISTRESS: "Oh is that Haile Selassie?"

PUPIL: "Yes, but to us he is JAH".

So that would be my (and many people my age in the UK - I was about 12 or something) introduction to rastafari I guess. :D

Fanatastic... got a good dose of Grange Hill in that clip. Hehe, what a great relic, if not a little painful at times.

Ini Kamoze - Wings With Me from his incredible first album. One of the finer reggae albums released in my opinion.

haha. Sign of the times. Reggae will never feature in popular culture like that ever again unfortunately.

This is classic. I remember when this first came on and when they repeated them all in the early nineties on sunday mornings (allways watched with a heavy hangover). It is sad - but i remember that Susan Tully draged Glenroy off the decks for a dance so Pogo Patterson could take over.
