    A BBC show featuring everyday workers being put in the 3rd world equivalent of their job. This episode was a bus driver in London driving a Philippine Jeepney in the Philippines. BIG difference. He also gets to live with the Jeepney driver and see how they live. I was lucky that we didn't live like the families featured in this one, but that type of squalor is not out of site. Where you'll have a nice posh neighborhood, just down the road is a bunch of overnight-popup houses by squatters. It's almost an hour long, but skip around and see how he does.

    Skip to 35min and it's a very touching scene.
