With the continuing post-Brexit questions about Britain’s spending habits, Jacques Peretti, in this one-off documentary, looks beyond the budgets we are all too familiar with – choosing to investigate some public sector budgets that, unsurprisingly, haven’t made front page news.
Peretti raises questions about the millions in taxpayer cash that is disappearing into opaque deals and contracts on projects ranging from virtual receptionists to spying on late-night dog walkers with night-vision goggles.
With this revealing insight Peretti questions whether the public should remain in the dark or if they deserve to know who is spending Britain’s money and why.
