- Doreen Percival has mesothelioma, an asbestos-related, incurable cancer of the chest. It was once rare and yet it is estimated that 50,000 people will fall victim to it over the next 25 years. Among those who have already died are three brothers, who - like Doreen - all worked for the same blue-chip British multinational company.
Taking Liberties starts its new series with an investigation into allegations that this company used legal chicanery deliberately to cheat its employees and their widows out of compensation for this industrial disease.
For some the expose comes too late. But as Doreen says: "It is some sort of revenge for what they have done to us."
