    The footage seen here was shot for the Thames Television current affairs programme "This Week".

    Reducing the clip's current date range of 1970-79, the footage was shot on 8 September 1971.

    The title for this piece refers to the "Black Panther" George Jackson, who had died in San Quentin the previous month.

    Further footage from the same day can be seen in clip 3344.05.
