Taking Back Control | Britain’s Forgotten Men

Taking Back Control | Britain’s Forgotten Men

Many white working-class men are struggling in today’s society – low education, poor jobs, high crime.

Filmmaker Dan Murdoch spends a year on the fringes of Manchester in some of Britain’s most deprived estates. He finds anger, resentment and frustration. But he also finds a spirit of camaraderie among the estates that are fighting to stay above water – fighting not to be forgotten.

In part one, Mikey puts on a party for his community and Jordan tries to survive on the streets.

Britain’s Forgotten Men is an ongoing series. The first four parts will be released daily.
