In 1951 Jean Hartley , aged 18, unmarried and pregnant, arrived at a "home for wayward girls" in Hull. One of many similar church-run institutions, it was a place where hard work and prayer went towards ameliorating one's shame. She recalls her own experiences and tracks down other girls who were there in the 50s and 60s. Producer Edwina Wolstencroft
