About the Show

The Money Programme conducted a unique experiment. It asked the Hutchinson family from Teesdale - the area in the UK with the highest carbon emissions per household - to try and cut back their energy use. Dr Brenda Boardman, a home energy scientist from Oxford University's Environmental Change Institute set them tough new energy targets for a week. She asked them to drive no more than 30 miles, use only 10 kWh of electricity and burn just 3.5 litres of heating oil each day. When Dr Boardman returns in 7 days will she be pleased with the results?
