Meet the Immigrants

Synopsis
This DVD contains the six programmes from the BBC1 observational documentary series which looks at the lives of several members of the new wave of inward migration into the UK. It takes the audience into areas seldom explored, showing lives normally only stereotyped. We see why they come, what they do, how they survive. The programmes also reflect the ongoing national debate on Immigration and explore the common themes - industrious newcomers performing unskilled jobs that Britons won’t do or opportunists in search of an easy life, attracted by the UK’s flexible laws and systems. The series goes beyond the headlines and shows life from the perspective of the immigrant. Narrated by David Morrissey.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
