Protecting Our Parents

BBC Two

Thursday 17 April 2014

9.00pm-10.00pm

There are more pensioners than children living in Britain. As the population gets older increasing pressure is placed on a system which, at times, is struggling to cope. With unprecedented access to the NHS and Social Services’ older adults care teams in Birmingham, the programme follows cases over a year from the perspective of the professionals, families and the elderly. Betty Williams, Jim Page and Henry Robinson, like thousands of older people in the UK each year, are in hospital following a fall. They want to return home but the challenge for the professionals is balancing their safety and independence.

Despite pressure to marry local boy Ned after her mother’s death, Mary refuses to compromise. Though Ned is kind to her, she doesn’t love him and won’t marry without love. Mary declines Ned’s proposal, and journeys to the ends of the Earth to Jamaica Inn in Cornwall to stay with her aunt Patience. Life at Jamaica Inn challenges Mary’s black and white perceptions of morality as she finds herself living among smugglers in a lawless land where no one is quite who they seem. When she thinks she has witnessed a murder, Mary wonders at what cost she will stay silent.
