Full synopsis

The final episode of the series explores the concept of Charity. We've looked at some the less pleasant aspects of humans in previous episodes but this show is all about the positive. There are lots of examples of altruistic behaviour and feats of generosity - the social traits of our species are at the root of why we're so successful. But it's complicated. Can we find compassion for each other when we're doing the wrong things for the right reasons?
