Watch the promo...RTÉ presents a week-long series of programmes which capture where we've come from over the last 18 months, take stock of where we are now and try to identify ways in which we as a nation can get Ireland from crisis to recovery.

Across the week, a number of RTÉ Television programmes will reflect the after-effects of the boom and bust: from the reality of unemployment and life in so-called "ghost towns" to positive stories of businesses and families who are thriving in spite of the recession.

Other programmes will look at the bigger picture, ask where to from here and present challenging ideas as to how we as a nation can move on from the shock of economic collapse.
