Rural Media (who host the Travellers’ Times) are working with BBC4 and are keen to talk to the people themselves, or relatives or friends of Gypsies and Travellers who appeared in BBC documentaries in the 1960’s.
It’s a serious social history documentary charting the changes in Gypsy Traveller life since the 1960’s.
