The BBC Synopsis of this program:

Part of White season. Tim Samuels looks at immigration in Middle Britain by exploring the biggest migration to Britain in centuries - the arrival of approximately one million Polish people. Part of BBC TWO's White season.

Tim Samuels explores the biggest migration to Britain in centuries - the arrival of approximately one million Eastern Europeans in the country.

Some locals in Peterborough say their city's being 'swamped'. But if the Poles and others left could we cope without them? And can the desperate leader of a Polish city woo Peterborough's Poles back home in time to build the stadiums for the Euro 2012 football tournament?

Tim Samuels, the man behind last year's pensioner-pop phenomenon The Zimmers, takes a subversive look at the reality of immigration in Middle Britain. [AD,S,SL]
