Thinking Allowed will be looking at a ‘home’ shared by a group of professionals/semi-professionals - a ‘family’ in the very extended sense of the word who are making a home together partly out of economic necessity, but also out of lifestyle choice. The programme will ask, what does family-life constitute in new home arrangements? What does it mean to set up home nowadays with economic demands (price of housing, mortgage difficulties)? What kinds of tensions emerge in sharing when one is not in a recognisable ‘relationship’?
