4 x 60′ Thursdays at 9pm from 4th February 2016 on Channel 4
Immigration is one of the most hotly debated and polarising issues in Britain today, this four-part series explores lives and aspirations of new migrants to Britain and the impact of immigration on a single community – Page Hall in Sheffield.
Page Hall’s tightly packed streets of terraced houses were one home to a predominantly white working-class community. During the 60s and 70s, migrants from the Pakistani controlled area of Kashmir came to the area and thrived, owning properties, shops and restaurants.
Over the past five years more than 1,500 Roma migrants from Slovakia have moved to the area hoping to build the sort of prosperous lives for themselves that previous generations of immigrants now have.
