People like us?

I've just watched the first episode of People Like Us, a new fly-on-the-wall series on BBC3 about Harpurhey, a working-class neighbourhood in North Manchester.

I know TV shows, like the rest of the media, all tend to look for the unusual and the unexpected but People Like Us seemed dominated by that quest. It was interesting to see how attitudes to gay couples, couples of different ethnicity, drag queens and transsexuals have all changed for the better in the last twenty years but I'm not sure there's really enough material for a six part series.
