LIVING CHANNEL – Fridays from 17 July, 10.30pm

Could you live off the stuff other people throw away? Could you find everything you need to survive, from food through to clothing, in your local tip? This is a programme about learning to recycle the hard way as ten wasteful consumers make their home on Britain’s biggest rubbish dump, using only what they can scavenge. Once they’ve come to terms with their new home, they undertake a number of challenges to demonstrate just how resourceful they can be – and learn the value of other people’s leftovers. And putting up with it really does pay off, as the one who lasts longest drives away in a brand new, totally green car. Green TV has never been so mean and messy!
