Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair’s former closest advisor, knows from bitter experience the true cost of excessive boozing. His alcoholism contributed to his nervous breakdown.

With exclusive access to one of the country’s leading rehab clinics, Campbell ventures into the world of Britain’s Hidden Alcoholics, meeting high earning men and women whose lives have been torn apart by alcohol.

Over 9,000 people die from alcohol every year, but has the national obsession with teenage binge drinking hidden an epidemic amongst Britain’s professional classes?
