How did Ireland hop from hostess trolleys to haute cuisine; from whirly nylon carpets to whorled oak floors; from walking to school to being chauffeured in a four-wheel drive?

In the last forty years, the Irish home has shifted to the home/office.

Pot roasts are replaced by pot noodles.

So just what have we gained and what have we lost in this huge social change?

And who is left holding the baby if we haven't already thrown it out with the bath water?

Home is a six part archive based series that traces the leaps Irish society has made over the last forty years and in the face of the Celtic Tiger.
