Meet the Immigrants is a six-part, observational documentary BBC series, co-produced by the Open University.
Translocations: The Irish Migration, Race and Social Transformation Review, 4 (1).
Yolanta Bikova, a Latvian explorer in Lyme Regis, has no real problem with the BBC/Open University camera that tracks her self-conscious moves. Creeping up to a manicured green she beckons the camera to look over her shoulder at the dollop of fantasia she has discovered; scones, lawn bowls and starched linens. Her arch reaction is suggestive; viewers might be meeting the immigrants, but who is the England/Britain that is doing the meeting?
