Episode 2 of 6

Duration: 1 hour

From £200,000 two-up two-downs to shoebox-sized flats for a million, this episode focuses on the extremely polarised London property market and the estate agents plying their trade in the cut-throat capital.

In exclusive Chelsea, we meet Ed Mead, director of Douglas & Gordon, and negotiator Eileen Neville. Despite press reports of a property boom in central London, Ed and Eileen are experiencing a worrying slowdown. Have prices risen too high, even for the rich?

Just a few miles east in Dagenham, London's cheapest borough, homes are flying off the shelves - often selling within 48 hours. With demand fierce and outstripping supply, streetwise agents Darren and Caroline work flat out to beat local rivals and stay afloat.

And in one of London's most exclusive streets, agent to the super rich Gary Hersham values a unique Georgian town house for a London socialite. With a unique taste in interior design, her extraordinary home comes complete with a life-sized model elephant.
