This chapter focuses on post-war migration to Britain and the effects this had on culture and media, raising the question of what it meant to be ‘British’ as foreign food and dress sense became increasingly popular within England. There is also discussion of the music fusions seen since the 1960s and how these were rooted in empire and migration to post-war Britain. The chapter covers the more modern approaches to history writing since the 1950s, looking at the influence of television and film, which allowed for a change in the way the empire was represented, drawing on examples of films made in Britain, India and Australia. De Groot concludes with discussion on the novels published during this period that held themes of the imperial past.
