We travel across the country to find industrious and ingenious Americans who prove they're not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty to make a living. Dealing in the diverse, exotic and, even occasionally, cringe-worthy underground economy of crud. Eels, mushrooms, ginseng, bloodworms and burls are important natural resources. Their harvesting goes back many generations and is now subject to federal, state and local laws. Anyone contemplating these activities should follow all legal requirements and sustainable practices.

Filthy Rich & Catflap is a BBC sitcom produced in 1986 and broadcast in 1987. The series featured former The Young Ones co-stars Nigel Planer, Rik Mayall, and Adrian Edmondson as its three title characters. It was written by Ben Elton (with additional material credited to Mayall), and produced and directed by Paul Jackson (who also directed The Young Ones), with film sequences directed by Ed Bye. The show's music was written by Peter Brewis. One series consisting of six half-hour episodes was produced. Despite the continuity announcer saying that the show would return the following year, only one series was ever made. The series enjoyed a resurgence of interest in 2004 when it was officially released on DVD by independent DVD production company Playback. The VHS and DVD versions were cut for musical rights. These included Richie singing “Where Is Love?”, “Morning Has Broken”, and “Consider Yourself”; and Eddie singing “Roxanne”, “You've Got to Pick a Pocket or Two”, and “Message in a Bottle”. A 25th-anniversary DVD was released in 2012.
