Channel 4 has announced the return of Kathy Burke for a new two-part documentary on the world of money, Kathy Burke: All Money.
As a society we are obsessed with the pursuit of wealth but our relationship to it remains complex. People can demonise those who don’t have it and sneer at those who have recently acquired it.
Across the two episodes, Burke will meet people from all walks of life to investigate the reasons for this difference in treatment, and attempt to predict how attitudes may change after the current crisis.
Burke said: “As someone who came from living in poverty in Islington to now owning a house there, I feel I’m a perfect person to look into one of the world’s most divisive subjects.”
Gilly Greenslade, Commissioning Editor for Factual Entertainment at Channel 4, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Kathy Burke back to Channel 4 to give us her unique and unrivalled take on something we Brits can find quite embarrassing to talk about, money.
“Kathy is perfectly placed to infiltrate a range of worlds, and most importantly, she’s willing to ask the questions others wouldn’t get away with.”
