Inspiration: The Oldest Show on the Road - low cost, high impact digital heritage

The Oldest Show On The Road is a great example of high impact for low spend.

An unflinching poetry film, which explores the media's skewed representation of Traveller communities here and around the globe, was commissioned by Travellers’ Times for only £1,500 but went on to win the 2016 Royal Television Society Diversity Award.

It is also an illustration how heritage doesn’t have to be limited to a physical place or space. What the film explored was cultural heritage of memory, stories, and human experience.
