On Benefits: Portsmouth Payouts

Documentary about people living on benefits in Portsmouth. Chris lives at home with his dad, his collection of energy drink cans and his moped. He is looking for work, but claims that there are more shops closing down than opening up. Carly and Drew spend their time playing darts, shopping and looking after the children, but they long for a better future. Barbara has a foot injury and is stuck between two benefit categories, meaning she has no money to live on. Robert works as a part-time cleaner, but is stressed by the pressure the job centre is putting on him and the amount of rejection he faces as he searches for more work.
