What's Fuelling Your Energy Bill?

Panorama investigates the inconvenient truth behind the UK's rocketing energy bills - that government policy is stoking much of the rise. Your money is being staked in the country's biggest energy gamble ever. As power stations are closed down, due to old age or high carbon emissions, 200 billion pounds are needed to keep the lights on. Fuel poverty now threatens one in four households yet the government remains committed to expensive alternatives like offshore wind and nuclear power: greener but, so far, dearer.
