First transmitted in 1992, 'Out of Site' highlighted the desperate state of some Council traveler sites just as the Government was introducing proposals to end roadside Gypsy encampments.

Essex is one of the counties with the highest proportion of Romany people in Britain. The programme investigated the strength of feeling against the new proposals - described by some as 'ethnic cleansing' - and examined some of the misconceptions, racial prejudices and realities of life as a 'Gypsy' in the 1990s.
