Permissive Night

An excellent series of programmes last night, on BBC Parliament (and not very well trailed), hosted by Joan Bakewell. It consisted of some very well chosen BBC archive footage of documentaries and debate programmes on several parts of the contentious social legislation of the 60s, including the reforms of the law on divorce, abortion, capital punishment and more. Some of them are available to watch again (for the next week) through the BBC iPlayer.
