The last of the series with David Jessel
The great issues of the day touch us all - yet we usually have time for only brief flickers of information from our TV and newspapers.
Heart of the Matter believes that we can learn more about the lives we lead -and the way we live them-by listening to people who have to confront and reconcile the dilemmas, the certainties, and compromises they, and all of us, must face. Each week David Jessel ventures into a matter of 'current concern; not to turn a spotlight on it, but to explore it from the inside - straight from the heart of the people involved.
