The Ice Cream Wars, 9pm, BBC Two

These areas were home to thousands, but local people had minimal access to shops, pubs or other amenities.

With few alternatives, ice cream trucks thrived and developed to sell a range of goods and made so much money that they drew the attention of the town’s mobsters.
