Life goes to Mumbai, formerly Bombay, to investigate the city's extraordinary slum culture. There is poverty and suffering but Mumbai's slum dwellers are a vibrant and proud community. The city is also an important microcosm of how slums are developing around the world. We meet many characters. They have no electricity, an illegal supply of water and no toilet. Globally one in six people live in slums. At the current rate of
growth, that proportion's going to double by 2030 to one in every three. As well as traveling through Mumbai's slums, "Slum Futures" also looks at how the authorities will deal with such a massive influx.
