As the Government looks to extend the right-to-buy to Britain’s 1.3 million housing association tenants, this programme examines who the winners and losers will be in of one of the most controversial housing policies of recent decades. Antony Barnett reveals how some former council homes have become a goldmine for a lucky few and looks at fears that the new policy could sound the death knell for social housing, while an undercover investigation finds companies encouraging tenants to break the rules and cash in.
The programme is Channel 4’s award-winning investigative current affairs programme and has been running since 1987.
