New Age Travellers: Time Shift / BBC four – Thursday 21st Oct 9.00pm
New Age Travellers are regarded by many as pariahs. With unique and never before seen archive this week’s Time Shift takes a fresh look at those who’ve often been called soap dodging, anti-social, drug taking scroungers.
From their origins in the early seventies, as idealists looking for an alternative way of life, we see how legislation and increasing fragmentation have eroded both the appeal and viability of being a New Age Traveller. Narrated by Paul McGann.
