Series 1

1. The Food Industry

First broadcast: Monday 14th October 2013

In this first episode, Andrew looks at the food industry. From horseburgers right up to snail ice-cream, it seems like there's something wrong with every rung of the food ladder. But given that food is essential to survival, shouldn't we be clearer about what it is we want from the industry that provides it?


2. Internet

First broadcast: Monday 21st October 2013

Andrew tackles the internet. Whether it's online pornography twisting our children's minds or GCHQ reading our emails, it seems only right to have a healthy distrust of the internet. But surely, to paraphrase a former Prime Minister, there's no such thing as the Internet - there are men, and women, and lolcats. What is it about the internet that makes people on it so scary?


3. Drugs Trade

First broadcast: Monday 28th October 2013

The drugs trade is one of our few booming industries. In this third episode, Andrew looks at the facts behind both the illegal and legal drugs. What are the risks? What are the problems? And what can we do about either?


4. Nationalism

First broadcast: Monday 4th November 2013

Andrew explores the reasons for joining nationalist organisations and the logical outcomes of their policies.
