British journalist and presenter Kevin McCloud embarks on a journey of architectural, cultural and social discovery in some of India's most deprived neighbourhoods.

Kevin McCloud; the posh one from Channel Four's Grand Designs, advocate of fancy architecture, and more likely to be seen espousing the joys of sustainable floorboards than shared sleeping quarters. Well, not this time. In Slumming It, Kevin headed to Dharavi, a slum in Mumbai and also, apparently, "one of the most extreme urban environments on Earth". There are no timber frames or sweeping landscape here. Just thousands upon thousands of people living on top of one another.
