The Price of Property

Saturday 27 September 2008

In the final episode of this four-part documentary series Jon Henley continues his journey around the UK to discover the real price of property. The government has said that three million new homes are needed to solve Britain’s housing crisis. But all across the country there are protests about new building. Jon asks if this country’s property-owning democracy can cope with building homes for future generations, and if Britain’s love affair with making money from property risks undermining the very things that attract us to it.
