Well put together program, but should we be glorifying rampant consumerism in this way? Surely this is the wrong message when we are being inundated with initiatives for sustainable energy, recycling, etc., and are seeing greater suffering than ever in the majority of the world. There was no mention at all of the negative impact of the various massive engineering projects featured, or the transportation of food and goods from one side of the planet to the other. What a contrast to the Poverty season which is tucked away on BBC4.
