Seize the Power – The Black Panthers

Anybody with a rudimentary knowledge of American History will recognize the image of the Black Panther - black beret, black leather jacket, holding a gun and looking mean. But what did they actually stand for? What did they do? What did they actually achieve?
I’ve had enough, I’m for the lads at the City End who don’t give a damn. Who work for the week to get to Saturday. ....


ZANI Media are proud to present, in conjunction with Stuart Deabill and Ian "Snowy" Snowball – authors, Thick As Thieves - Personal Situations With The Jam. A short but informative documentary on "The Best Fuckin Band in The World ...The Jam".... As fans, and those who worked with The Jam, like Dennis Munday and Bill Smith, tell us about their passion and experiences with the band.

John Weller - An Obituary

It is with great sadness that we heard the news that John Weller, manager of Paul Weller and The Jam has died.

Anybody who was lucky enough ever to see The Jam live will know that his bellowing introduction to the band -  ‘LET’S HEAR FOR THE BEST FUCKING BAND IN THE WORLD – THE JAM!’ was a vital part of the live ritual.

In the history of cinema there is no film quite like Performance - the cult film to end all cult films. Few films inspire such loyalty, such passion and such animated discussions.

Those who have seen the film Bronco Bullfrog will not have forgotten it. Made in 1969, it features real East End kids playing East End Kids and doing the sort of thing East End Kids of the time got up to. We are shown real stuff like the film’s star Del, out to impress on a first date, taking his girlfriend ‘up west’ on his new motorcycle. He decides that the West End cinema is a bit too pricey so instead takes her for a slap meal to a fancy restaurant – a Wimpy’s.

They Call it Acid

They Call it Acid
Picture This – London Town 1987. A once swinging city paralyzed by a cult of conformity and materialism. The youth more pre-occupied with getting on the property ladder than getting “on one.” But something stirs deep in the heart of the city’s underground – the sound of pumping bass and percussion. A seismic shift in London’s landscape is about to happen.

Babylon Revisited


Released nearly thirty years ago, Babylon stands up today as a well crafted, convincingly acted, hard hitting piece of realistic drama.

It’s powerful, resonant ending is up there with the classic Jimmy Cagney‘s “Made It Make top of the world” finale in White Heat. But Babylon is not available in any British Video store. It has been not been shown on British TV, neither terrestrial or satellite, for many years.  What is the meaning of this outrage?
