Professor Green: Hidden And Homeless
Confirmed for BBC Three on 9 February at 9pm to 10pm
Tuesday 9 February
With recent UK-based statistics showing that more than half of those seeking help with homelessness are under 25 (3), Stephen investigates this pressing issue which is affecting young people in greater numbers. But what do we recognise as homeless today?
From the streets of Manchester, where rough sleeping has shockingly doubled in the last year (4), Stephen spends time with a 21 year-old man who has already fallen through the cracks in the system. Yet homelessness is not always so visible to society, as Stephen finds when he meets others trapped in the cycle of temporary hostel life and sofa surfing.
On this eye-opening journey he’ll uncover a generation of people without access to normal society or a future - and ask whether rising levels of youth homelessness could bring us dangerously close a national epidemic.
Produced by Antidote Productions, executive produced by Laura Jones and Leila Monks from Antidote, and commissioned and executive produced for the BBC by Danny Horan, Commissioning Editor, Documentaries.
