The team at Rural Media is celebrating this week, having scooped the Diversity Award at the prestigious 2016 Royal Television Society Midlands Awards ceremony held on Thursday the 3rd of November in Birmingham.

The winning film The Oldest Show On The Road was originally commissioned for an event organised in partnership with BBC Outreach and The Travellers' Times – a multi-media project funded by Big Lottery and produced by Rural Media by and for UK Gypsy Roma and Traveller communities. Featuring a beautiful to-camera piece centred on a poem written and performed by Damian Le Bas, the film explores the media's skewed representation of Traveller communities here and around the globe.
