Channel 4’s Cutting Edge documentary Rich kid, Poor Kid tells the story of two London teenages who live in the same street but inhabit different worlds. As the title suggests they are separated by great social and financial inequality one attending private school and one living in a council flat. A great deal of the narrative is structured around the girls living so geographically close together but does it really give an accurate picture of the local area or those who live in it?
Do you live in the Rich Kid, Poor kid area? Is it a realistic depiction of the way people interact?
