Why Poverty? is a series of poignant and engaging short documentaries that take a fresh look at poverty in the UK and to reveal some of the little recognised truths surrounding the issue.

One story follows the Hope family, who have never been on holiday but get the chance to leave their council estate under Heathrow Airport’s flight path to go on their first subsidised rural break.
