It's an insightful documentary, and highlights how people value money so differently, despite it being one common currency. We all have our vices and we perhaps often spend more on certain things than we should, often causing us to rack up debts that can spiral out of control, like Charlotte in episode one, a single mum who aspires to the celebrity lifestyles she reads about on a daily basis, yet her only income are the benefits she receives from the state.
The idea behind the documentary comes as more and more people are getting themselves into debt and/or struggling with day-to-day lifestyle costs. Robinson looks at the nitty gritty of where we spend our money and how we value the things we have and don't have.
In episode two, Anne meets John Caudwell, one of the richest people in the UK, discovering whether he is one of the happiest men in the UK, seeing as money is supposed to buy you happiness, along with a number of other Brits who waste wildly or are spend savvy.
