Channel 5 is airing a documentary tonight which looks at mothers accused of child cruelty.

The short film takes us through the criminal justice system “from crime to verdict”, and explores how the child protection sector works, or doesn’t.

There’s already a lot of debate about this documentary over on Channel 5’s Facebook page, which you can check out here.

The programme is on tonight at 9pm.

Very many thanks to Linda Black for alerting us to this development.
