Horace Ové, holds the Guinness World Record for the first Black British filmmaker to direct a feature length film, "Pressure" (1976). In addition to his TV work, Ové has documented racism and the Black Power movement in Britain in films such as "Baldwin's Nigger" (1968) and "Dream to Change the World" (2003). Perhaps his best-known film, "Playing Away" (1987), centers around the residents of a British village who invite the "Caribbean Brixton Conquistadors" for a cricket match. In 2007 Ové was awarded a CBE, Commander of the British Empire, for his contributions to film in the UK.
