For some people, a housing crisis means not getting planning permission for a loft conversion. For others it means, quite simply, losing their home. This feature documentary, narrated by Maxine Peake, explores the catastrophic failures that have led to a chronic shortage of social housing in the UK.

With unprecedented access to residents, politicians and experts in the housing industry and media, this is the story of people fighting for their communities, of people who know the difference between a house and a home, and who believe that housing is a human right, not an expensive luxury.
