Bournewood20170829

Drama telling the true story of H, and his life at Bournewood Hospital. By Sasha Hails.

Deborah Bowman, Professor of Medical Ethics & Law at St George's, University of London, explores the remarkable stories behind some of the world's most discussed legal cases, and how they've have transformed medical practice for us all.

When 'H' got on the bus to his Day Centre, one day in 1997, he began a journey which ended in four court cases, a landmark human rights judgement, and resulted in the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS). As the Law Commission considers replacing DoLS with a new way of ensuring that vulnerable people are not deprived of their liberty, H's remarkable story - and that of his campaigning carers - continues to have consequences for tens of thousands of people around the UK.

Closely based on interviews with those who were there, our eye-witness drama tells the story of 'H', and his life at Bournewood Hospital.

And after the three o'clock news, you can join the real-life participants as they discuss the case and its consequences, in "Test Case: The Legacy of Bournewood".

You can also meet the extraordinary character behind "Test Case: Mr C" and discover why his legal case has had such a lasting impact, in "Test Case: The Legacy of Mr C" on BBC iPlayer.

Test Case: Bournewood is written by Sasha Hails, with additional material by Jonquil Panting.
