For some people, a housing crisis means not getting planning permission for a loft conversion. For others it means, quite simply, losing their home. In this new documentary, narrated by Maxine Peake, we see the catastrophic failures that have led to a chronic shortage of social housing in Britain. Focusing on the neglect, demolition and regeneration of council estates in Glasgow, London and across the UK, the film investigates how the state works with the private sector to demolish council estates to build on the land they stand on, making properties that are unaffordable to the majority of people.
