9.38 Lifeschool: Politics and You Who Benefits?
One of the main points of contact between the individual and the state is over taxes and benefits - the unemployed, single parents, and the disabled have strong views on this. But is it the role of the state to try and ensure a fairer distribution of wealth?

British Social History
The Social Effects of War.
The Labour Government of 1945 promised to use the lessons of wartime organisation to fight poverty, bad housing and bad health. This film, largely constructed of propaganda films and cinema newsreels of the period, shows how these ideas were expressed, and how the mood of the country changed in the years that followed.

The Search for the Disappeared
Argentina's military juntas were responsible for torturing and killing over 10,000 people. Today their bones are their only witnesses. By exhuming unmarked graves, forensic scientists are identifying individual victims and finding important evidence to bring those responsible to justice. Many of the 'Children of the Disappeared' have survived because they were illegally taken by military families who may have been involved in their parents' murder. When grandparents eventually trace their grandchildren, the only way they can get them back is to prove their real identity by genetic testing. Narrator Paul Vaughan
