Produced for BBC Radio 4, Like It Is explored how in 1972, soon after taking power in a military coup, the new President of Uganda, Idi Amin, expelled all the Asians holding British passports. They had made their fortunes in Uganda but now, almost overnight, their lives changed and they found themselves dumped in the UK, penniless and homeless.
