A Duty of Care
Although the death of Jasmin Beckford in 1984 focused attention on the problem of child abuse, recent cases make it clear that some children remain at risk in their own homes, even when the social services know the families. Can the risk be reduced without making unacceptable inroads into the rights of parents or unreasonable demands on resources?
David Wheeler looks at the questions facing the law, the statutory social services and the other agencies charged with the duty of caring for children at risk.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
