The Big Society

Children's fitness classes, a website to encourage volunteers and an Olympics legacy programme are three projects given millions of pounds of public money - yet failed to deliver. And they were projects chosen by an organisation set up specifically to lead David Cameron's Big Society initiative. Reporter Simon Cox looks at what went wrong and asks whether the Big Society is still going strong, in spite of, not because of the government's involvement.
