Professor Green in Working Class White Men

Every couple of weeks, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

There wasn’t much to report for December, which was all about the movies (and short-form), but coming up at the start of January, we have a TV preview.

TV Preview: Working Class White Men + Q&A

Thursday, 4 January 2018 – 6:45pm
Princess Anne Theatre, BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly
The first episode of a two-part series examining why many working class white men feel demonised, forgotten and angry. Followed by a Q+A with Professor Green and director Christian Collerton.

Presented by Professor Green this documentary explores what life is really like for these men, why many of them feel abandoned, and what the consequences are for Britain if we continue to look away. Raised by his Nan on a council estate in Hackney, Professor Green is himself from a working class, low income background.

Over a period of six months he follows six working class white men in different parts of the country to understand what life in modern Britain is like for them. He examines the challenges and barriers these men face in education, work, family life and in the way the rest of society regards them.

Directed by Christian Collerton, with executive producers  Neil Crombie and Joe Evans, and produced by Swan Films.
