This two-part documentary series shows the very different lives of people on either side of the economic divide in Islington, London. In the big cities the rich and the poor live shoulder to shoulder. One side are the super cars and multi-million-pound homes, the other side mobility scooters and overcrowded council flats, but there’s more to living a rich and rewarding life than just material wealth. The Mega Council Estate Next Door follows the everyday lives of people on both sides of the tracks, there’s big bucks and big laughs, larger than life characters and heart-warming stories of two communities where, at the end of the day…. it’s the people that really matter.
