People know that there is a housing crisis in Britain, but the issue of how to solve it is a tricky one to deal with.

This two-part documentary deals with the problems of trying to build more houses to meet demand, while also having to face difficulties such as locals who disapprove of new houses being built near where they live. The opening episode sees the people of Culham, Oxfordshire, trying to sort the issue, and features interviews with architects, developers, councillors and campaigners all talking about the problems of building 3,500 houses in the village.

The New Builds are Coming: Battle in the Countryside is on BBC Two at 21.00.
