Monday 30th July - date for your diary:
Channel 4 Dispatches - Britainon the Sick 20.00 http://www.channel4.com/programmes/dispatches/episode-guide/series-117/episode-1
Using undercover filming, reporter Jackie Long investigates the shocking processes used to assess whether sickness and disability benefit claimants should be declared fit for work.

BBC Panorama - Disabled or Faking it? 20.30 BBC2 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01lldrc

Panorama investigates the government's plans to end the so-called 'sick note culture' and their attempts to get millions of people off disability benefits and into work. In Britain's modern welfare state, millions are being paid to private companies to assess sick and disabled claimants but is the system working? Or are new tests wrongly victimising those who deserve support the most?
