Stafford Hospital: Julie Bailey's story
The level of neglect and abuse found at Stafford Hospital during the mid-2000’s was one of the biggest scandals in the history of the NHS. Julie Bailey has campaigned for more openness at the hospital ever since her Mother died there in 2007. Her campaigning has been hugely successful but the personal cost has been great. She talks to us about the aftermath of that campaign.
Thankful Villages: Herbrandston crowdscape and Medwyn Parry's tour
Thankful Villages are villages in Britain from where all the men who went away to the First World War returned home alive. Some villages are ‘doubly’ thankful with all of the men returning alive from both World Wars. JP Devlin visits one such doubly thankful village, Herbrandston in Wales.
