The Great House Price Bubble?

Duration: 30 minutes

With house prices hitting record highs at the same time as living standards continue to be squeezed, Panorama reporter Adam Shaw goes in search of affordable homes for ordinary working families. He meets dual income households priced out of home ownership altogether and talks to one of the thousands of people being helped onto the property ladder by the government's controversial Help to Buy scheme. New research examines the number of UK households at risk of falling into unsustainable debt with each half percent rise in interest rates.
