From the disparate experiences of British Asians through the generations, a narrative of immigration, racism, industry and deprivation emerges, with the 2001 Bradford Riots a rupture point in a wider story. Delving into the events of 2001 and Bradford’s inner city, The Bus Drivers’ Children explores how the riots came to unfold and the impact of that year on the city’s young British Asians.
