A blast from the past, an absolute classic from the hey day of proper TV documentary They Steal Children Don't They? has been brought up to date. This is an amazing film about gypsies, revealing the forgotten link between their language and languages from the Indian subcontinent as well as their ancient culture and craft. This is one of the best observational pieces I have ever seen.

Reminds me of a joke someone told me yesterday:

Q: Why do seagulls have wings?

A: To beat the gypsies to the tip!
