On February 25, 2004 The Huddersfield Daily Examiner ran an article on a documentary film called "Migrations" by Navdeep Singh Kandola, a British Sikh man, that exposes racial and ethnic stereotyping among Britians: "The film, made with the help of £25,000 lottery cash, is premiered at the Lawrence Batley Theatre on Monday and is set to be shown at youth clubs and community groups, to prompt debate...Navdeep says: 'In the 70s and 80s, people used to love sitcoms that made fun of differences. Everyone used to laugh at the Indians in It Ain't Half Hot Mum. But political correctness has gone so far that we can't make a joke about people's racial differences any more. In my film people say the sorts of things they've been told they're not supposed to. And I only included those who said what they really felt.'"
