Getting Rich from the Housing Crisis

Channel 4: Dispatches

As Britain faces a major housing shortage, how is it that some of those responsible for providing the social housing so desperately needed seem to be doing so well out of the crisis?  Reporter Anthony Barnett and director Roger Corke travel around the country to hear from communities under threat at a time when the pay of social-housing bosses has hit record levels, while the provision of housing for social rent has hit an all-time low.  

Among their discoveries is that an executive of a housing association in one of the poorest parts of the country received a pay-out of more than a million pounds.
