I grew up listening to the radio and am a fan of BBC World Service, for all of its faults. Their recent documentary on James Meredith was superb, showing the complexities of the civil rights struggle, discussing the issue and the reality of modern America.
It is available at, A Long Walk Into History.
Downloadable as an MP3 here.
Other BBC World Service podcasts as well.

On this day in history: James Meredith barred from Ole Miss.
