Three miles north of the city centre is a little-known Manchester suburb called Harpurhey. Ten years ago it was labelled the most deprived neighbourhood in England, but there's a lot more to life around here than government statistics.
In this six-part documentary series, a vibrant mix of feisty, witty and headstrong young people show us what it's really like growing up the hard way.
In the final episode we catch up with the Wakefields, who have been experiencing a lot of spooky activity in their house which they put down to Malcolm - their resident poltergeist. Malcolm has become such a nuisance that Karen has called in the local ghost hunters to try and contact him. Amber and Paul aren't quite as convinced, but still get caught up in the ghost hunters' findings. When the Wakefields appear to catch evidence of the ghost on camera, they call the ghost hunters back to the house for one final showdown with Malcolm.
Best friends Jazmine, 14, and Kelsay, 15, live around the corner from each other and hang out together all the time. Jazmine's been the victim of racial abuse and her mum Jaki has had enough of seeing her daughter upset. Jaki's decided she's going to move her family out of the area, so this is the girls' last summer together. How will the best friends cope when they are living ten miles apart?
Likely lads Aaron, 21, and Mikee, 20, are best friends who have both been laid off from low-paid jobs. Determined to make something of themselves, they have decided to start their own painting and decorating firm. Paid work is in short supply though, so their first job is to build a wheelchair ramp for Aaron's nana, who hasn't been able to leave the house for a month. It might not pay the bills, but they get great job satisfaction giving her a vital lifeline. Will word of the business spread so these wannabe painters can be their own bosses?
We also meet Javeno, 27, a fitness instructor on a one-man mission to get Harpurhey fit. He's tough on his clients but gets results, and has a growing band of devotees who never miss his sessions. But that's not enough for Javeno. With health a major issue in Harpurhey - life expectancy is seven years lower than the national average - Javeno's planning a free mass workout day to get the community doing something about their health and fitness. Can this exercise guru get Harpurhey fit?
