Saw this advertisement on a new TV series by channel 5 called recession heroes. I think it would be an interesting program to watch.

From Mediacorp website:
Recession Heroes is a 6-episode docu-drama series featuring real-life stories of six individuals who had been adversely affected by recessions such as the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, 2001 September 11 Attacks and the 2008 Lehman Brothers
