Series 2    Reveals how fear has a powerful hold over our behaviours – and how this has been exploited by those with products to sell. He meets the men who sold us cigarettes, cars, soap, and even water off the back of our anxieties – and our desire to have those anxieties banished. In Las Vegas, he meets the men promising to sooth our deepest-seated fear of all, of ageing and death.

Series 3   Reveals how the lessons learned from selling to children were used to make childlike consumers of us all.  From the rise of product-driven kids’ TV in the 80s to the man who designed cars that appealed to children and the contemporary creators of games that hook adults.  How spending turned into a game – one that we can’t stop playing.
