[edit] Information

Tahera, Rubina and Ghazala are charming, opinionated and determined ladies from Yorkshire, with one major thing in common – they're all Asian aunties, women who use their lifetimes of experience to impart wisdom, pass judgement and glue their communities together. This engaging and insightful documentary follows this trio of Bradford women as they embark on their latest mission – to ensure their language, food, music and values are handed to the next generation. Aunties Tahera, Rubina and Ghazala believe passionately in the preservation of their culture for their communities' young people. However, in the wake of today's digital world, they fear this is in danger of being eroded as the next generation of Asian youth adopt more western ways. Rolling up their sleeves, the aunties embark on the biggest challenge of their lives – a unique and bespoke community project looking to bring the young and old of Bradford together. And to cap it all, they're planning to take everyone on a big coach trip to Blackpool at the end of the project. The aunties' master plan is to run a series of workshops to teach young people a host of skills and provide a chance for the generations to get to know each other better. From music to poetry, cooking and the importance of family, the aunties look to connect the youth with the old ways and ideals. But along the way, will they discover they have just as much to learn from the young cohort? This isn't a boot camp for the faint-hearted. And helping them at every step will be their army of trusted, elderly aunties. With their reputation preceding them, our aunties hit the streets of Bradford to recruit young people to their cause – but will they be able to engage a tough crowd? Or is the gap between the generations just too wide to be filled? As the countdown to the coach trip to Blackpool gets under way, the aunties have a lot to organise, with their reputations and culture on the line. Can they connect with today's youth, or will it be a bumpy ride, with the old ways driving a wedge between them? Exploring community, tradition, love and friendship, this warm, compelling and ultimately moving documentary – with unprecedented access to the UK's south Asian community – follows aunties Rubina, Ghazala and Tahera attempting to pull out all the stops as they head towards an all-singing, all-dancing coach trip. All in the name of preserving their Asian culture for the next generation.
