In the latest BBC episode shown on the 31st August Clarke starts his search in Trinidad as he uncovers his ancestry, but soon ends up on the small island of Carriacou, off the coast of Grenada. There he learns of an ancestor called Glasgow Bedeau who was born into slavery and Clarke is told the slaves were supervised by a man named John Dallas who had a reputation for being particularly brutal.

Noel’s spirits are lifted when he’s welcomed into the family fold with a powerful musical ritual performed by Glasgow’s descendants.
