Stefan Gates travels to one of the poorest and most corrupt areas of India, Bihar, where the rural Dalits are locked in a system of poverty and disadvantage. There he engages with one of the lowest sub-sections of the Dalits, the Musahars, or "rat eaters". These desperately poor peasants work the land for landlords, in return for a small portion of rice. To supplement their diet, they catch rats. For eradicating the rodents, the landowners allow them to keep the rats for eating. It's a gruesome perk, but with little other protein available, the rats are a great treat.

Global warming and climate change are here and the world is hurtling towards a crisis point. How much more abuse can the Earth take? What would happen to us if our water supplies suddenly dried up? How would we survive if our rubbish and waste matter were not collected? How would we cope without fuel for our vehicles? How would we survive without electricity or gas? Without radically reducing our consumption of four eco hotspots - energy, water, transport and waste - the consequences will be harsh - for all of us. This is a six-part reality series that lets viewers see what life could be like without all the things we take for granted.
