Drugs, anti-social behaviour, family break-ups and joblessness: all part of life on Britain's poorest housing estates. Filming with families, kids and police, as well as undercover with drug dealers, Panorama spent months on one estate in Blackburn finding out what it's like to live and grow up there.
There's eight-year-old Oshi who is desperate to see his dad after a two year absence. Jordan, who at only 15, is threatening to leave his family home because of the trouble and 20-year-old Jessie, whose behaviour frightens other residents and keeps landing him in prison.
Richard Bilton asks, is this really a picture of 'Broken Britain' - a place at the edge of where the state can make a difference?
