The US comedian looks in depth at the idea of the American Dream.

Hall’s investigation goes all the way back to the Pilgrim Fathers and their idea that you will succeed if you work hard, then looks at how the dreams has been dealt with and exploited by some people, and how the dream is being covered by the current US president. Rich also looks at what happens when the dream goes wrong, like it did during the Great Depression.

Rich Hall’s Working for the American Dream is on BBC Four at 21.00.
