Producers confirm Immigration Street will be filmed in Southampton

Daily Echo: Derby Road is the location for the new Immigration Street documentary filmed in Southampton Derby Road is the location for the new Immigration Street documentary filmed in Southampton

COMMUNITY leaders have told of their fury after learning that a controversial TV documentary will be filmed in their neighbourhood.

As reported by the Daily Echo, plans were first revealed in April this year to film a sequel to the hit series Benefits Street – which prompted criticism for how it portrayed people on benefits – and producers were focussing on Southampton.

But now TV company Love Productions has confirmed that it will film its new six-part series called Immigration Street in the city – despite the protests of community and city leaders.

Each of the hour-long shows for Channel 4 will be filmed in Derby Road in Newtown – one of the most diverse communities in Southampton – and researchers for the programme say that it will focus on people going about their daily lives.

But community leaders fear that it could spark “racial tensions” which could have long-term repercussions on the neighbourhood and the city as a whole.

David Roath, of the Gurdwara Tegh Bahadur Sahib, in St Marks Road, fears it could ruin the community that he has “worked hard” to transform for 25 years.

He said: “I am firmly against it and our Gurdwara is firmly against it.

“I don’t want it here. By all means, have your fun but don’t have it in my street and don’t have it in the community that I have managed to bring up, that I have worked in for so many years.

“Look at what happened in Benefits Street. People will talk. I don’t want Derby Road to be a place where people unload their baggage.

“This Immigration Street is, for me, only a bad way forward in terms of we don’t know the end result. It could blow up in our face and we will get the usual repercussions from it.”

Kieran Smith, director of the show, said: “Immigration is one of the most keenly debated subjects in the UK right now and therefore it is incredibly important that we reflect the honest experiences of people who have settled in the UK and come to consider it as home.”

Mr Smith said that he had met with community leaders in the run-up to filming.

Both Pritheepal Singh Roath, of the Southampton Council of Gurdwaras, and Harjap Singh, of Hampshire Sikh Council, said that they hadn’t been consulted.

Mr Singh denounced the programme makers as “irresponsible” and said: “This is nothing but a spot of trouble. They are just trying to make money out of the situation.”

Mr Singh Roath said: “A lot of people aren’t happy. From what I have gathered people are worried about the situation.”

David Vane, secretary of Southampton Council of Faiths, said that his organisation did not want anything to do with the programme.

He said: “Everybody is of the general stance that Southampton is a fairly peaceful city. We don’t see that this programme will do us any good judging from the reaction to Benefits Street.”

Khalid Farooq, general secretary of the Pakistan Welfare Association, was more reserved in his opinion.

He said he was hopeful that the series would show how the community is united.

He told the Daily Echo: “It doesn’t matter where you are from or what religion you are, we are part of the UK.

“Southampton is a multi-cultural town. People are worried about the show in the community but people can learn something from it.”

Programme makers intend to air the six one-hour episodes on Channel 4 early next year.

Mr Smith elaborated on those being filmed over the next six months, none of whom, he said, have been paid.

He said: “There’s a whole mix of people. Some who are second or third generation, some regard themselves as British, some as British Indian or British Asian, some who have only recently arrived.

“The thing to be clear about is that although the working title is Immigration Street, we don’t spend six months talking about immigration. It’s about telling people’s stories.

“Just as Benefits Street didn’t spend six months asking people about their benefits, it forms the backdrop but it’s a story of humanity.”

As to why the company chose Southampton, he said: “Southampton is a well known city but very rarely do you see it on television.

“We could have gone to another city but we thought it was important to represent parts of the country that aren’t on television very often.”

He added that if people didn’t want to be filmed then they would be left alone.

He said: “There are no auditions, it’s documentary journalism, finding out what the people’s stories are, what their lives are like.

“It’s an observational series. No one is compelled to do it.”

Dont be so stupid i was relating to the ratio of foreigner now in our city i see the article states the people are Indian and Pakistani 2nd or 3rd generation which i certainly dont have a proplem with. Nothing as been said about the influx of Aficans or the eastern europe migrants that are definately a burden to our already overworked systems. We need to stop the rot and quick.
I also read that another 6 counties want to join the EU thats in effect another 90 million migrants that have an open door to our services cant wait.

This isn't that big a deal: if you don't want to be in it, refuse. If you don't want to watch it, then don't. Part of people's hostility I assume is not liking immigrants even though we're all human in this world.

I bet all the people moaning about no one speaking English, don't have a problem with all the british immigrants that have moved to France, Spain, Italy speaking English in a Foreign Country! At least the immigrants that have moved here haven't taken over local councils such as English people have in Spain, and I don't recall them throwing up and partying through the night either making towns look like a disgrace in the Med, so stop being such a hypocrit!

It saddens me with some peoples perception of immigration and I have to agree this TV series will no doubt cause controversy by those who can't see past the end of their nose.

I'm going to use Indian people as an example, purely because I frequently visit India. These people work hard and many do so to support their families back home, whom many live in a shack with no running water etc.

What I love about people like this is that they will travel the world and work hard to try and make their families lives better, who can blame them for that?

Yet us rich white British would rather just moan about how hard done by we are.

Bit rich of mr singh to be saying the company is only doing it to make money?
How much money does he make off the immigrants crammed into his innumerable properties. Or more to the point, the amount of housing benefit he ends up receiving for some of them.
Or is he panicking at how lovely his properties are going to look on the TV with illegal overcrowding?
Why would the producers consult with them as they have a vested interest in nothing being shown which might reflect badly on 'their' community

All these people that say immigration benefits us.
Yes if you're a slumlord or min wage employer.
I don't blame the people of Eastern Europe coming to UK where they can earn three times as much even on min wage here.
However this does cause a few problems;
Open borders, lax immigration policy in general & EU membership are OK if you like;

1] Mass unemployment, austerity & democracy lost to ECB loan sharks in Med countries
2] More & more control of our country given away to the emerging EU dictatorship
3] Low population density E.European countries being further depopulated
4] Cheap imported labour that drives wages down & take jobs from locals
5] Classes full of kids that need special lessons in speaking basic English
6] Being told it's just Daily Mail fiction when we see it with our own eyes
7] 28,000 or is it 5,000 Romanians I don't care, held for crimes
8] Higher house prices & rents due to increased demand
9] More crowded surgeries & longer NHS queues
10] Worst housing shortage since WWII
11] More & more houses on greenbelt
12] More & more road congestion
13] Child grooming gangs
14] People traffickers
15] FGM

Why would anyone in their right mind want these things?

The Swiss who live in the only remaining democracy in Europe recently voted to take back control of their borders.
So unlike us they will now be able to refuse entry to;
Rapists
Terrorists
Murderers
FGM freaks
Paedophiles
Drug dealers
ATM criminals
Fake students
Child traffickers
People traffickers
Child grooming gangs
People that don't speak their language
People that want to adopt an alien culture
People that want or have to wear burkhas
People with no money & people with no skill or job.

All these people that say immigration benefits us. Yes if you're a slumlord or min wage employer. I don't blame the people of Eastern Europe coming to UK where they can earn three times as much even on min wage here. However this does cause a few problems; Open borders, lax immigration policy in general & EU membership are OK if you like; 1] Mass unemployment, austerity & democracy lost to ECB loan sharks in Med countries 2] More & more control of our country given away to the emerging EU dictatorship 3] Low population density E.European countries being further depopulated 4] Cheap imported labour that drives wages down & take jobs from locals 5] Classes full of kids that need special lessons in speaking basic English 6] Being told it's just Daily Mail fiction when we see it with our own eyes 7] 28,000 or is it 5,000 Romanians I don't care, held for crimes 8] Higher house prices & rents due to increased demand 9] More crowded surgeries & longer NHS queues 10] Worst housing shortage since WWII 11] More & more houses on greenbelt 12] More & more road congestion 13] Child grooming gangs 14] People traffickers 15] FGM Why would anyone in their right mind want these things?

Has anyone here ever seen any of the spineless FibDemLabCon career pigs show the guts & principles to stand up for us, our country & for right versus wrong the way Nigel Farage does?
I like Nigel's line in the clip below - 'Now I know auditors are not particuilarly popular with the EU Commission & If they do their jobs properly they get fired.'

The EU is an undemocratic expansionist empire that serves only the political class who are completely out of touch with the people.

If you can't take over a continent using guns & bombs then use a common currency. The EU commisioners are velvet Nazis.

I watched a Sky TV programme on the 'Yesterday' channel about WWII Nazi collaborators. In Greece they had a puppet prime minister to do the Nazi's bidding. 800,000 Greeks died under the Nazis. Many civilians massacred in reprisals. Reminded me right away of the expansionist EU empire at the heart of which lies Germany.
Now 70 years on Greece has another puppet prime minister 'Puppet Samaras' installed this time by the EU velvet Nazis who now control Greece via its money supply. Mass austerity & unemployment trapped in the Euro beholding to ECB loan sharks.
'Do as we say or you vill get no more bailouts'
Yes folks Germany has managed to ruin Greece again. This time with mass austerity, unemployment & massive debt. A familiar tale in the other Med countries ruined by the EU & the Euro.

When I see people knocking Farage, but not being critical of the Frankenstien characters running the EU economic dictatorship, it's the equivalent of people here during WWII constantly knocking Churchill, but not being critical of Hitler!
