    This is my debut documentary starring some unforgettable characters who all have their own personal, and sometimes sad, stories to tell.

    With homelessness on the rise in the UK and with more people sleeping rough on the streets than ever, I decided to speak to the homeless people of Manchester to see just how bad it is.

    With the council only providing a 'snap shot' of the true statistics of how bad the situation really is, we go on a journey with some of the people that the council are refusing to acknowledge.


    With thanks to Claude Lee Sadik, without whom this film couldn't have been made, thank you for accompanying me for the strange and wonderful adventures around Manchester at very unsociable hours.

    Mark Sargison for cleaning up the audio and adding a wonderful soundtrack.

    John at Deep Elm Records for letting me use the one track I found that fitted this piece perfectly, you are very kind.

    Lukasz, I doubt he will ever read this, but he made me realise just how lucky I am and to not take anything for granted whilst appreciating everything and everyone in my life. I hope our paths do cross again and under better circumstances.

    And finally, please please please support you local homeless shelter, these guys are the real heroes working all out to help people in need. They rely so much on government/council funding and this is being cut all the time up and down the country, so it is important more than ever to donate money, food or clothing. Every little helps.
