The last programme in the series profiles Sheila McKecknie as she leaves Shelter, the national campaign for the homeless, after ten years as director. She recalls her unrelenting attack on successive governments, not so much for their housing policy as for the absence of one.
"Instead of co-ordinated policies to ensure that everybody has a home, we have seen a narrow-minded obsession with home ownership and a series of short-term fig leaf initiatives which obscure the consequences." Throughout her time, Sheila McKecknie has made sure that the big issue of homelessness remained high on the public agenda; true to form, she uses her last television appearance as Director of Shelter to keep it there.
