Bust is an intimate portrait of families struggling to cope with personal debts as the credit crunch unfolds.

Tracy and Melvyn bought their council house on a low interest mortgage, but with rates soaring they’re now in trouble.

Michael is struggling to afford the help he needs to cope with his lung and heart disease.

Maria is a social worker who took out a loan when she could easily afford the repayments. Now on maternity leave - her creditors are threatening to send in the bailiffs.

We follow these families over a year as they struggle to cope, and battle through the bureaucracy of bankruptcy and repossession.
