Interesting documentary on social inequality

I just watched this on the BBC iplayer:

It gets real interesting at 25 mins when one person claims there is an ability distribution across the classes - not something I agree with (I think the journalist does a good job of debunking this). The notion of some genetic lack of ability amongst the lower clasess is sadly a common thought that even affects how people do gospel work amongst those from deprived areas.
