The gypsies next door

TX 2019 / 4 x 60" / Channel 5

There isn’t a community in the UK more universally vilified than Gypsies and Travellers.  They live side by side with the settled community but more often than not, struggle to be understood by each other.  For the first time, this brand new series hears from both sides, from local residents fighting to ban Travellers encampments from their towns, to Gypsies fighting to keep their traditions alive.  

 

Can these communities ever learn to live together or will Gypsies and Travellers continue to be pushed to the margins of society?
