Simon Schama, Beeban Kidron, End of Human Rights
Philip Dodd talks to the historian Simon Schama about his History of the Jews and to the film director Beeban Kidron about her new documentary exploring the impact of the internet on children and young people. She argues that the adult world has abandoned its children to the seductive pull of the digital world.
And are we living through the end times of Human Rights? Philip talks to Stephen Hopgood who argues that global power shifts and social changes mean that we can no longer rely on a shared comfortable language of human rights or indeed expect the world to agree that there is a Universal set of rights to be asserted. Clive Stafford Smith of Reprieve offers a more optimistic view.
