An upcoming BBC4 documentary on the cultural impact of the martial arts in the UK, beginning at the end of the 19th century with the very gentlemanly cross-training self-defense system of Bartitsu and extending through to the Bruce Lee craze of the 1970s.

Note that, because of BBC licence restrictions, the video clips (and the documentary itself) are not intended to be viewable outside of the UK.
