1. this is a trailer for a short documentary of the birth of ska in Britain. Duke Vin and Count Suckle were two of the pioneers of the Jamaican sound in the UK. Duke Vin built the first sound system in the UK in 1956 and Count Suckle started the first club that welcomed black and white people, attracted all the leading musicians of the day - and played fantastic music!

    Producer/Director: Gus Berger
