BBC Two announces a new documentary on the 1970 Miss World contest

BBC Two announced a new one hour documentary about the 1970 Miss World contest, when a dramatic protest by the Women’s Liberation Movement created headlines around the world.

The Miss World Protests (w/t), made by BBC Studios, tells the story of the infamous 1970 Miss World contest, when protestors dramatically disrupted the show - kick-starting a feminist revolution in front of an audience of millions. It was also a time of growing anti-apartheid protest, and the first ever black South African contestant was sent to the contest with the dubious title ‘Miss Africa South’, alongside the white Miss South Africa.
