The series examines hot political topics for young people such as ‘Who polices the police’, government cuts and UK extremist groups. By weaving political music from artists such as Ghetts & Durrty Goodz alongside a documentary narrative, the series makes for engaging and informative viewing.

he first episode sees Jody examine who polices the police.
