The Dolmetsch Story tells of the famous family who dedicated their lives to educating the public on the joys of the recorder musical instrument. Desmond Dekker and Milly appear in Horace Ove’s Reggae, a documentary which combines the history of Caribbean immigrants to the UK in the 1950s with a reggae concert.
