BBC Four will air four new programmes across February celebrating British diversity and voices that are “less known and often unheard”, including an episode about the Leeds Jewish community.

The new commissions form part of a season exploring the communities which shaped modern British history.

One of the programmes, A Very British History, will explore key moments in the 20th century for minority communities across Britain, focusing on the Jewish community in Leeds, Afro-Caribbeans in Birmingham and Romany Gypsies in the Home Counties.

BBC Four channel editor Cassian Harrison said: “BBC Four is a unique proposition within British TV and we’re always proud to celebrate voices and stories that are less known and often unheard.

“This season of programming will take viewers into a whole series of hidden corners of our nation and its story.”
