Joe Swash: Teens in Care

Over the years, Joe Swash’s magnetic personality has endeared him to millions of TV viewers, but now he is delving into something more serious, and more personal.

This documentary follows Joe as he explores the stories of teens in care over the age of 16, the largest-growing cohort in both child protection and care. His motivation is deeply personal. It’s an issue that is close to his and his family’s heart, as his mum, Kiffy, has been a foster carer for over 15 years.

Joe wants to spend time with teens across the UK, who live in foster care, in residential children’s homes, and some who left at 18 and are trying to make it alone, to show what growing up as a teenager in care is really like.

His journey of discovery follows the long-awaited publication of the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care, which promises a ‘once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the children’s social care system’. But can it really get to the root of the problems facing teens in care?

Through this experience, Joe also sees at first hand the work of foster carers and the army of frontline workers dedicated to helping teens in care, as he seeks to find out how some of the issues they encounter in the care system might be tackled better.

The Repair Shop: NHS Special

Two nurses and The Repair Shop team stand beside a children’s toy train that’s big enough to take a small passenger

To celebrate 75 years of the NHS, the team revives four precious items chronicling the evolution of the publicly funded healthcare system founded in 1948.

First, the barn team welcomes a very important visitor who owes his life to the NHS, children’s author and poet Michael Rosen. He’s hoping bookbinder Chris Shaw can repair the daily diary kept by nurses and carers whilst he was in a 40-day induced coma at the start of the pandemic. The modern spiral notebook is Michael’s only record of this time when family members were unable to visit. The hospital staff were the only people in close contact with him and used the diary to relay what was happening to Michael day to day. The ‘patient diary’ was gifted to him when he was finally discharged from the critical care unit.

Along with the notebook, Michael has brought the many letters, drawings and notes that his young fans sent to him whilst he was in hospital. Currently being stored in a messy bundle, Chris gets to work to create a more fitting tribute for the thoughtful artwork leaving the usually eloquent Michael momentarily lost for words.

George Michael At The BBC

The late, great and much-missed George Michael was one of Britain’s best-loved and most acclaimed music stars.
