Hello. Welcome to Inside Out. Here is what is coming up tonight: You


are all under arrest. For a -- sent home, at migrants are made to leave


for. Tom Hart Dyke tracks down some very rare plants. I have never seen


the Red Helleborine. Is there any way that today I could go in and


touch it? And from America with love. How one man that the family

The European Union allows free movement to people between member


states. Bognor Regis has attracted 20,000 migrants from Western Europe,


but the UK Border Agency has the power to enforce removal. We have


invited people in to prove that they belong in the UK. These people


are being interviewed in that room. They have breached their treaty


rights. All European people that three months to come into the


country, and in that three months, they have to be able to take care


of themselves. The people that we have invited in


are homeless street drinkers and people who have been involved with


minor crimes. We need those people to prove that they have been in the


country for either five years or less than three months. Some people


today will get some bad news. You are all under arrest. You have got


to come with us. When we get to custody you can get a Polish


speaker. But sending migrants home is usually controversial for --


hugely controversial. For the UKBA saying that this is a last resort.


With the help of a Polish police community support officer, this man,


Leonardo, tells us that it is getting harder and harder to find


So there are too many people and not enough work? Yes. Loads of


Europeans are wanting to stay over here. They prefer here than in


their own country. They live here. If they do not have a job here,


they have still got a better life than in their own country. One


gentleman came to England. He lost his job. He did not leave anything


to his family. They think that he is working but he lives on the


street. He asked me how he could go home without anything. He says that


they think he is working here. He doesn't work sometimes. He sent


them some money. -- he does work sometimes. He sent them some money.


He wants to send money to Paul and so they think that he has got lots


of money to live here. -- to Paul and so they think he has got lots


This is a rough sleeper and drinker who is well known to the police. He


has reached his as Bowe and has been put on a notice. This is the


fit a breach within the last few months. -- this is his a Fifth


breached within the last few months. He thought he was getting a coach,


this is what he says, but he actually ended up in the UK. He


thought he would stay. He has been offered a lot of support by


different agencies and he does not want to engage at all. Sussex


Police say they are trying to change how some Eastern European


people view the authorities. They are even using social media like


Facebook to get across the message that they are here to help, but not


always what the result that they want. In this case, a Polish


teenager is getting a dressing-down from the police because of


something he posted on Facebook. sent us a message on Facebook


saying that he will not talk to the police and back to anybody who does.


That is not helpful. -- and death are to anybody who does. It does


not about trying to get people into trouble. It is about getting in


contract with us. -- in contact with us. Every year, young Eastern


Europeans arrived in Bognor for back-breaking seasonal work. Many


of them send money home to their Farms could not do without this


work force who are happy to work for �250. This year it has been a


patchy start. They are only doing one day a week here or there. Most


of them understand that it is dependent on the work being there


to do. They are there to take the money back home or provide


themselves with a comfortable life while they are here. By a way from


the places that provide accommodation, there are those who


sleep on the streets. There are people who are leaving their


belongings behind. We have checked all of the names out. We are still


none the wiser. We go in daily to check on who is their 4th up -- to


check on who is still there. There is nothing of any value there so I


will leave it where it is. people work on the farms and they


prefer to save their money. It is about �50 a week. They sent it back


to their homeland. That can be quite a lot for their families. If


we think about one month, they could save about �250 a month for


that they can send to their families. The Border Agency says


that EU nationals who have been here longer than three months must


be working or studying or otherwise self-sufficient in order to stay.


He tells me that he has no papers and no money, but he is still


hopeful that he will not be forced back to his home country. About a


dozen or so people are at the police station in Bognor for their


meeting with the Border Agency which will decide if they have to


go back to Eastern Europe. Everyone seems desperate to stay, but it is


up to individuals to prove they can support themselves. I am diabetic.


I do not speak English well. I was told by my employee that I would be


able to work. They are waiting for me to come back to work as a


valuable team member. OK. So, what is the news forgers have? - No What


is the news for this man? -- White is the news for this man? Are you


-- so you are going to state in Bognor? Yes. I am happy! And not


everybody is as lucky as this man. Four out of five people are sent


home. A lot of the people we have seen this morning had been given a


lot of options and engagement from other agencies. It is a sad fact


that sometimes these do not work and we have to remove people back


to their home country. For this man it has not gone well. He is under


arrest and will be sent back to Poland. But because this is not an


official deportation, there is nothing to stop him going back, and


some critics believe forcing the you members back is illegal.

Border Agency might have overstepped the mark on this and


there might be doing something that is unlawful. -- and they might be

both committed is whispered into Next, Tom Hart Dyke knows a thing


or two about some of the extreme lengths that some people will go to


find rare and extreme plaque. He missed his own life trying to get a


rare orchid in one ear. Welcome to my garden here at our family home.


Today I have the absolute privilege of for introducing you to some of


the most precious and unusual plants in southern England. Honest


admit, bringing a tear to my eye, I am going to be showing you the


darker side of the plant world. First I am going to be giving you a


mini-tour of my garden. There are 8,000 bracts from all over the


globe. -- plants from all over the Book of your teeth up at a


conception of the world good. -- book on to the South African part

And don't I know it? I was even kidnapped and held hostage while


trying to find a rare orchid. Even in England, people can be just as


it obsessed. I am going to a top secret location where I will show


you one of the most rare plants in this country. All I can say to you


today is that we are in the children heel. Passionate good


Chiltern Hills. It is the pride and joy of the Berkshire,


Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Mi facing the right direction? I


have never seen the Red Helleborine. And it is fabulous. It has been on


the brink of extinction for the last 20 years. The is delicate and


very fussy or did only grows on We turned up one day, and all but


one of them had been cut off. was the.? I don't know. Certain


people just fill the one to deny the pleasure of it to certain


people. This thoughtless disregard for the Red Helleborine has had a


knock-on effect. Is there any way today that I would be allowed in to


see them up and actually touched them? You would have to knock me


out first. That is not on at all? Not at all. The Red Helleborine is


on a knife-edge, critically NJ -- endangered, sono. Could I suspend


myself in the air? I've got a zoom on my camera lens. The Wildlife


Trust is working with Kew Gardens to find ways of spreading the plant.


But this is the closest I will be able to get to the delightful Red


Helleborine. Next, I've come to this estate in


Suffolk -- in Sussex to look at this other rarity which was


targeted by collectors. What a fantastic place, look at that beech


tree, marvellous! Look at these delicate fronds. Fantastically


delicate. This is the tiny fern wishes all battered remains of a


plot that was ripped from the rocks. This whole patches where the firm


was. This whole packed? After it had been pulled off, there was a


bright white area of rock. How many were taken? I would have to say


hundreds. It is the equivalent of taking an entire forest, it grows


so slowly. Who was it, a specialist collector? I wouldn't want to guess.


I can't understand it. You have to know exactly what you are looking


for to find it. And there were bits that fell on the ground that he


managed to be propagate? Yes, not very much. We found a bit the size


of my head. We separated it into smaller chunks and located in


different places on the Rock. it Penygroes on the sandstone? --


and it only grows on the sandstone? Yes. It would never get a gold


medal at the flower -- at the Chelsea Flower Show, but it is a


gold-medal plant. It is a fantastic name. I am happy, seeing it for the


first time, it is very exciting. I am now on my way to find my third


and final rare plant which grows here and nowhere else in Britain.


I'm delighted that this plant has not been tampered with. The locals


are taking no chances. This I have found it. In the best


location in this country. The only place in the country to find it. I


am struck by how ornamental it is. The park was only discovered in the


19th century. -- the plant was only discovered. It is critically


endangered. This site is on the Isle of Wight. Look at those


flowers, that fantastic speckling. The petals are very ornamental


close up. The smell also intrigues me. Especially on the upper part of


the stem, but also on the leaves. They are minty scented. The wood


can amend was nearly lost altogether. Now it is making a


comeback. The habitat is being managed more sympathetically with


the help of the local Natural History Society. We got the seed


under licence and scattered it here. We Tom sponsored other seeds from


the local area and the following year, we had a nice show which was


the impetus on getting it to take it elsewhere in the side. You have


saved one of the rarest plants in the country from extinction. It is


fantastic. In your capable hands, Imagine growing up not knowing one


of your parents and then discovering you had a whole new


family on another continent? That happened to one American man whose


journey brought him to the south. Ted being and his wife are waiting


for an American cousin. Terry Byng is coming by sea to meet his


British family. It is almost unbelievable. Because as far as the


American family were concerned, his family never had -- his father


never had any more children. Terry Byng grew up in America never


knowing his father or his Portsmouth family. Terry's family


John went to America during the Second World War where he met and


married terry's mum, Nancy. But a few years later, Jack, as he was


known, left Nancy and returned to Portsmouth. When his father came


back from America, his father waved another Banana about. We have never


seen a Banana! You know what it means? The last 25 years have been


a blank spot in my life. I have always wanted my children and


grandchildren to know the side of the family we have never known.


is not unlike his father. His father used to wear a hat like that


when he was bowling. But you are taller than I expected. His father


was tall? About the same height. First visit on the day's agenda and


Ted is taking Terry and his wife, Martha to the dock where their


father had worked. All the dockyard people worked here and everybody


went in that way. That is really where your father went every day


for 45 years. Except when he was in America. Terry first found his


British family when he posted details of his British father on


the social networks site. About two years ago, my older son had gone


into Facebook and have found a thing called our family page. I put


a post on their about who I am and Portsmouth, and for two ears, never


heard anything. Fast forward a couple of years to a week before


Easter. I was on Facebook with my grandson and this name came up,


John Alfred. He was scrolling down a anti- scrolled past my post and


said, wait a minute! Go back. said to my grandson, house-trained,


my Uncle Jack, his real Alfrick -- his real name was John Alfred.


wife said there was a man on the computer trying to talk to us from


Portsmouth, he says he knows your father. You could have knocked me


over. I said, what are you talking about? She said, this guy wants to


talk to you. The first thing I did, was asked if he had any pictures.


Within five minutes came two pictures. Myself and my wife Gwen


said, my God, it's Uncle Jack! Because his mum told him so little,


Terry can only guess why his dad left her. My mother was a �90 a


red-headed Irish woman who had a temper like a bobcat in a burlap


bag. You did not want to be on the wrong side of that woman. From what


I know, my father had a short temper. They probably didn't get


along real good. Jack came back from the United States not knowing


his wife was pregnant. That is what I feel. So of course, Jack went on


with his life. He lived with his mother until she died. On the day


that he died, he came to our house and our mother opened the door, and


said -- and he said, mother is dead, can I stay with you for a few days?


He stayed 17 years. Until he died. Your father gave this to me, just


over 50 years ago, just after we were married. But I have only used


it once. It is always called Jack's camera. Jack died without him or


his family ever knowing he had had a child. In America, his son grew


up without a father. This is your father's camera. When I grew up


post-World War Two in America, everybody in a small-town had a


father. I was the one who didn't have one. Look where it was made.


Bingham town. We are terribly lucky. We have


family, cousins. He has never had anything like that. I feel so proud


to be with him. That was your father's it is now


yours. For him, it must be pretty


wonderful. He bought it in the States with your mother. Possibly,


the photograph that you have got was taken with that. He is 10 years


older, he has had a great life, and we don't have much life left but we


are going to try to spend some of it together. But we are off --


because we are family and family is very important to me, because I


didn't have a family. There is another few fund are here. --


Another viewfinder. OK, take the pictures now. Terry's dad Jack was


to me -- was cremated so there is no great to visit. They have come


instead to the grave of their grandparents, buried just outside


Portsmouth. Here we are. What about that, then? October 1953. Our


grande marque, 1957. Just before I went in the army. I'm very proud of


to be here with our grandparents, he and I together. Not many of us


left. This is a wonderful thing for us. After all these years, and for


me, 66 years of, to finally come to this place. Not the way I wanted to


meet my grandparents, but our family is united. Thank you, terry.


We are a family, now. That's all we have time for from


Bognor. See you next week. Next Monday, we Checkout cold


callers who claimed to have a great green investment opportunity.
