Benefits Street Series 2

4 x 60' Monday 11th May 2015 Channel 4 

One of the most controversial and talked about documentary series of recent years returns for a second series.

Last year the first series of Benefits Street, filmed on James Turner Street in Birmingham, sparked a political and media debate about poverty and welfare with one of the street’s residents, ‘White Dee’, becoming a national figure.

This time the series focuses on Kingston Road on the Tilery Estate in Stockton-On-Tees, an area hit hard by recession and economic decline.
