Dispatches takes some hi-tech monitors to investigate hidden pollution areas in our daily lives. It is soon discovered that people are able to inhale much more harmful material than official figures first suggested. New research is examined which indicates that, as well as causing tens of thousands of early deaths through heart attacks and strokes, pollution may affect children’s learning ability. It could also be the cause of asthma. Also, experts reveal what needs to be done to keep us as safe as possible.
The programme is Channel 4’s award-winning investigative current affairs programme and has been running since 1987.
