A ten part series. Andrew Dilnot charts Britain's transformation through numbers. 1) Population: how population has reshaped through the centuries would make us unrecognisable to our ancestors. 2) Prosperity: the rich man's income from only a few generations ago would be worth less than minimum wage today. 3) Health: Andrew explores the history of Britain's health numbers. 4) Stuff: Andrew presents revealing statistics and stories of the way stuff changed our lives. 5) Homes: Andrew looks at the statistics to explore why housing has become a national obsession. 6) Education: Andrew looks into the data concerning education, and finds a story of a sudden spread of privilege. 7) Work: how does our long-working-hours culture, often with low wages and job insecurity, compare with the past? 8) Old Age: Andrew reveals the changing shape of our lives by compressing a whole life into 20 seconds. 9) Women: how do the repeated patterns of change in the data explain the way women's lives transformed? 10) Living: if the history of the economic struggle for survival is over, do we now need to work out how to live?
