Show Summary
Whether it's chavs, WAGs, slummy mummies, the celebritocracy or the tension between supersizing and size zero, The Noughties examines the defining events that have shaped British life in the first decade of the 21st century, telling the surprising story of our times.

In this three-part series, leading experts and commentators look behind the headlines to examine how middle age was replaced by "middle youth" while, at the same time, real youths became a source of fear and anxiety.

The Noughties asks if an apparent tendency to speak and dress the same masks a collapse in social mobility and, turning its attention to globalisation, the series considers whether modern Britain, populated by everyone from Polish plumbers to "migrant" Premiership footballers, is a winner or a loser in the new world order.

Along the way, the series shows how cheap downloads saved the Millennium Dome and how the rise of China rendered burglary redundant, but made mugging cost-effective.
