Fifty thousand farmers will go bust in the United States this year - as they did last year, and the year before that. Evoking memories of the 30s, whole agricultural communities are simply loading up their possessions and heading for the cities - leaving their farms to their creditors and their homes to rot.
Memphis, Missouri, is a mid-western farm town on the brink of collapse. Producer MARTIN SMALL BBC Pebble Mill

Bread and Roses
'You need people who are prepared to commit themselves to each other, to their workforce, in order for this country to prosper. That is a Christian thing to do, if it is done on a basis of equality.' Half our waking lives are spent at work. And for most people work means routine laced with competition - a sort of nerve-wracking drudgery. Given our highly developed and sophisticated economy, could our life at work ever be different?
In the past ten years there's been a huge growth in enterprises formed by people who believe it could. Inspired by the example of Ernest Bader , who gave his business to his workforce and started the modern Common Ownership Movement, they have founded nearly 1,500 workers' co-operatives. By the year 2000, at the current rate of increase, there could be a quarter of a million coops in Britain. But can co-operatives provide jobs that are more than 'just a job'?
And can they still be viable businesses at the same time?
