School Aid Film Night was a great success

Friends and supporters of School Aid gathered together for the 3rd School Aid Film Night at the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield.

The film, A United Kingdom, told the story of King Seretse Khama of Botswana and his controversial marriage to a British white woman, Ruth Williams, which put his kingdom into political and diplomatic turmoil. It was an extraordinary story, which had been beautifully filmed, and explained the events which led to the British protectorate of Bechuanaland, now known as Botswana, becoming independent within the Commonwealth in 1966.
