A question of class

Professor Paul Dolan examines whether class is fundamental to how people see themselves and whether we want a classless society. 

He speaks to two people who come from very different backgrounds. Lily Russell-Stracey went to an exclusive boarding school and a top university – and is now a plumber in Glasgow. Dr Wanda Wyporska comes from a working-class background and was raised by a single mum. She went to Oxford University and is now Executive Director of the Equality Trust.

Paul also speaks to Dr Sam Friedman from the LSE who wrote The Class Ceiling: Why It Pays to be Privileged. He’s also joined by his mate Rory Sutherland, vice chair of the advertising agency Ogilvy.
