Watch Panorama tonight - The Great Disability Scam?

Mon, 28/01/2013 - 16:50 -- nick

BBC1 is tonight broadcasting an episode of Panorama that looks at how the Work Programme is delivering for disabled people.

Using the testimony of whistleblowers, disabled jobseekers and others, it shows that there is a lack of respect for the unemployed in some delivery organisations, that those who are hardest to help have not been supported as expected, and reports on the findings of a survey of providers.

Review – Panorama – Trouble on the Estate

Wed, 12/09/2012 - 19:08 -- nick
Conditions on the Shadsworth Estate, on the outskirts of Blackburn, are far from ideal. According to Trouble on the Estate, Panorama’s hour-long special, it is a hotbed of drugs, anti-social behaviour, bad parenting, violence, and unemployment. 2,000 people live there, but the programme focused on just a few families. The filmmaker, Richard Bilton, spent months filming among them, to gather what he believed was an accurate account of life on a British housing estate.
