Benefits Britain 1949
Three unemployed people find out what it's like to live by the rules of 1949. Ashley is forced to move back in with his family when his housing benefit is taken away, but the 19-year-old agrees to spend a day with a construction firm in a bid to open up new horizons, while Vanessa, 39, makes do with £7.40 in child benefit until she's offered a grant and a job with a temping agency. Forklift truck operator Michael has worked for most of his life, but many of the companies that employed him have closed down, so the 41-year-old has to live on nothing while he waits to be means-tested. Last in the series
