Faith in the Family

The Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks reflects on the growing pressures facing British children in a documentary marking Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year

He talks to psychologist Oliver James about the causes of children's unhappiness and to broadcaster and child protection campaigner Esther Rantzen about family life at its best and worst - and how, in her house, the archetypal Jewish mother still reigns

And there is insight from Professor Lord Robert Winston about what science, and Judaism, can tell us about building strong families.
