Episode Summary

The final episode of season one uncovers the prejudice that exists against the travelling community in Britain today. But discrimination is nothing new to the travellers and their secretive seclusion from mainstream society seems to be their only defence. In this final episode dressmaker Thelma has to make a dress for a bride who won't even tell her when the wedding is for fear of the venue finding out she is a traveller and cancelling the booking. She is right to be concerned as another bride, 19 year old Irish Traveller Bridget, has already had her wedding venues cancelled three times. The night before the ceremony, and with the dress of her dreams, she should be enjoying herself but as her family arrive for the ceremony she nervously worries it could still go horribly wrong. Gypsy elder Billy organises the annual Appleby Horse Fair. The event is well established but when police presence is noticeably increased gypsies and travellers take to the streets in protest. Will the Appleby residence support them and will the Police hear their concerns?moreless
