“You can’t reform profit capitalism and inhumanity. Just kick it till it breaks.”
— Angry Brigade, communiqué.
This documentary, produced by Gordon Carr for the BBC (and first shown in January 1973, shortly after the trial), covers the roots of the Angry Brigade in the revolutionary ferment of the 1960s, and follows their campaign and the police investigation to its culmination in the “Stoke Newington 8” conspiracy trial at the Old Bailey—the longest criminal trial in British legal history. Produced after extensive research—among both the libertarian opposition and the police—it remains the essential study of Britain’s first urban guerilla group.

“Even after all this time, Carr’s book remains the best introduction to the culture and movement that gave birth to The Angry Brigade. Until all the participant’s documents and voices are gathered in one place, this will remain THE gripping, readable and reliable account of those days. It is essential reading and PM Press are to be congratulated for making it available to us.” –Barry Pateman, Associate Editor, The Emma Goldman Papers, University of California at Berkeley
