Skint Britain Friends Without Benefits S01E01

Skint Britain Friends Without Benefits S01E01
Following the residents of North East town of Hartlepool as they became guinea pigs for the roll-out of Universal Credit, and the shocking events that followed. Far away from the Westminster bubble, the stark realities of the tougher new system's impact on people's lives come sharply into focus. The programme follows unemployed Nathan and Abbey, as they take their dog out to hunt for rabbits to cook, and partially-blind David, who has had his benefit payments reduced, meaning he has just £5 to live off for the entire month.
