Damned If They Do – Follows on from the 2004 documentary Someone To Watch Over Me, which revealed the pressures on the system responsible for safeguarding vulnerable children in inner-city Bristol. The series explores the problems that exist in society that lead to the neglect and abuse of children, most often by their own families. It also throws light on why there is a perpetual recruitment crisis in social work, and the difficulties social workers face in everyday life.
