The Parent Trap

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 06 February 2013

Sally Phillips is Clare Barker the social worker who has all the right jargon but never a practical solution.

A control freak, Clare likes nothing better than interfering in other people's lives on both a professional and personal basis. Clare is in her thirties, white, middle class and heterosexual, all of which are occasional causes of discomfort to her.

Each week we join Clare in her continued struggle to control both her professional and private life

In today's Big Society there are plenty of challenges out there for an involved, caring social worker. Or even Clare.

In 'The Parent Trap' Clare is relishing the role of acting Team Leader at the Family Centre but at home she's not relishing a visit from Brian's mother.
