The Super-Rich and Us is a fascinating BBC documentary series that started last Thursday hosted by Jacques Peretti, a sort of cuddly Adam Curtis. It’s the sort of documentary that should make most of us struggling to make a living incredibly angry that the UK is now at the whim of the wealthy and that London is being reshaped as a place for the rich and those wealthy enough to enjoy the city that at one point, was open for anyone. Now it isn’t.
It’s only the first part, but this promises to be a TV highlight of the year. Here’s the iPlayer link and I’ve embedded the Youtube video below.
