The first of a two-part documentary in which Professor Green finds out what life in modern Britain is like for working-class men in different parts of the country. He begins by meeting Lewis, who has his heart set on going to Cambridge University but is up against a culture of low expectations, Essex boy Denzil, an aspiring entrepreneur with numerous money-making schemes on the go, and unemployed David, who is currently living in a homeless hostel in Bolton and is on the verge of becoming involved in far-right politics.
