TV Times - - Film Guide -

doc­u­men­tary / 9.00pm / C5

of­fer­ing a rare in­sight into the se­cre­tive world of the big top, this three-part doc­u­men­tary meets some of the UK’S youngest cir­cus stars, who are of­ten pro­fes­sional per­form­ers by the time other kids are start­ing school. Work­ing seven days a week from Fe­bru­ary to Novem­ber, life is far from easy, but what shines through is the young­sters’ love of the job. Sis­ters Rosita, 15, and Eva, 13, are at their hap­pi­est when they are liv­ing the cir­cus life, even if it means sharing a car­a­van with their par­ents and mak­ing do with­out run­ning wa­ter. ‘We don’t mind be­cause we love be­ing here so much,’ says Eva. ‘We’ll never get bored of it; it’s the best!’
