This week: The Other Half
Nowadays it is difficult to tell who are the New Rich - or the New Poor. Henry Taroni , for example, has dirty hands and a noisy Birmingham scrap metal yard. But he's probably worth nearly a million. Or Louis Green, selling blankets from a barrow in the East End, who picks up £100 for a morning's work. He stays in bed for most of the other six and a half days a week.
On the other hand, there are the New Poor, who despite their clean suits and their respectable worthwhile Jobs have been left behind by the affluent society. People like Frank Beveridge , a Ministry clerk, trying to bring up a family on about £24 a week. Or Frank Tebbutt , who gave up a well-paid position as a surveyor to run a charity's animal rescue home.
HUNTER DAVIES wrote a book about the New Rich and the New
Poor, called The Other Half. Now JEREMY JAMES and a Man Alive film team bring the book to television.
