How The Other Half Live

Thursday, July 30 on 4

There are almost four million children living below the poverty line in the UK. Made by the team behind The Secret Millionaire , this new three-part series aims to show just what it means to grow up in poverty in 21st-century Britain. Each episode follows the story of two families as a wealthy family decides to assist one that is living below the poverty line. Each family hopes that their children will gain from the experience by understanding what life is like for others. The series raises important questions about how we respond to the poverty on our own doorsteps.
