Five years on from the credit crunch, this series reveals the dramatic stories of British people on the sharp end of bad debt. We'll discover what it means to be a creditor who can't get back what's owed, what it's like to be saddled with a debt you just can't repay, or what it takes to be the kind of person who can pay but just won't. Following the no-nonsense repo men and bailiffs charged with sorting the whole mess out, this is the human face of credit-crunched Britain and debt in action. Getting the stories from all sides, we will see our key characters repossess items from homes and businesses on behalf of creditors big and small - from large corporations to private individuals. We will be with them as they enter everything from Indian restaurants to high street shops, from homes to offices - delivering a fresh and incisive view of Britain today. It is a view that sees them come face to face with some of the best and worst. They are routinely faced with as many aggressive, emotional or just downright lying people as genuine cases of hardship and misfortune. We will see them travelling the length and breadth of the country to bring back what is owed - and their fees. They rarely come away empty-handed.
