The Day The Immigrants Left

BBC One

What happens when you deprive a British town of its foreign work-force? The Day The Immigrants Left is an audacious social experiment that seeks to answer precisely this question.

Hosted by the BBC’s Evan Davis, this film challenges the indigenous residents of a small town to do the jobs they claim have been stolen by foreigners. Along the way it examines the impact that immigration has had on the wider community before delivering a damning verdict on how the townsfolk performed in their new jobs.
