Just noticed this (rebroadcast from BBC2 April)

Travellers

Next on:

Today, 23:50 on BBC One (except Wales)
Synopsis
Episode 1

The Stewarts are Scottish Travellers, proudly maintaining their traditional lifestyle, travelling the country in caravans and tents. They believe their culture is under threat, and that they are at odds with householders.

They want to foster better relations with the settled community, but they won't give up their Travelling lifestyle. They've let the cameras record their lives over a period of nine months, sharing precious moments, rarely witnessed outside their own community.

As the number of Travellers on the road shrinks, those that remain are determined to do whatever it takes to keep their culture alive.


Travellers (2)

Next on:

Next Tuesday, 26 July 2011 23:35 on BBC One (except Wales)
Synopsis
Episode 2

When Scottish Traveller Donald Stewart tries to defend his family from an alleged racist attack at Dyce, near Aberdeen, he is the one arrested.

The Travellers believe they are treated unfairly and they want settled people to be more tolerant of their Traveller culture, but as they move around the country they are not made welcome. In Montrose they are given several police warnings before being charged with illegal camping.

Young Donnie competes in the British Schoolboy Boxing Final, and sister Tina describes what it's like to be a Traveller girl today. As Donald's court case nears, he is told he may go to prison. What does the future hold for the Scottish Travellers?

Maeve, other threads describe ways of by-passing the UK-only block built into BBC iPLayer and other play-it-again facilities, but I can't find any right now.

Thank you, Ross. BBC Scotland welcomes me; too bad we're closed off from BBC.co.uk.

I'll try to find that information tomorrow.
