Whatever Happened To The Working Class - A Taste of Money


Sarfraz Manzoor examines the forces that have had an impact on the traditional 'working class' in Britain. After a decade of supposed 'classlessness', the issue of class is back on the agenda. Once again, it matters if you identify yourself as working class, especially, it seems, if you are white. Sarfraz is taken on a tour of musical Manchester by DJ Dave Haslam, who reveals how the city has reinvigorated itself through an association with working class youth culture. He also talks to a theatre group that creates plays for the working people of the city and to Gerald Kaufman MP about the role of education in his journey into 'classlessness'.
