Dispatches is the British TV current affairs documentary series on Channel 4, first transmitted in 1987. The programme covers issues about British society, politics, health,religion, international current affairs and the environment, and often features a mole inside organisations under journalistic investigation.
On the day when a far-right terrorist is convicted of preparing to murder an MP, and two others are jailed for membership of banned neo-Nazi group National Action, Dispatches tells the inside story of how the killing was planned, and how that plan was betrayed to the police. Given exclusive access to the far-right activist who blew the whistle on the plot, the programme penetrates the secretive world of Britain's new neo-Nazis.
Hundreds of thousands of people are officially homeless. Now, with unique access, reporter Datshiane Navanayagam goes behind the scenes inside two homeless hostels in London to reveal the increasing number of people who are in work and homeless, unable to afford expensive inner-city private rents. She draws on her own experience of being homeless and uncovers how a low-wage economy based on zero hour contracts is leaving some people with no alternative other than to sleep on the streets. Datshiane talks to housing charity Shelter about new statistics that lay bare the intense personal anguish and embarrassment felt by those who are working but homeless.
Britain has some of the worst breastfeeding rates in the world and new mum Kate Quilton wants to find out why. Food Unwrapped presenter Kate gave birth to her son in May and found breastfeeding a challenge. At one point she said she felt like a 'leper' when she was feeding in public. So she investigates the obstacles to breastfeeding, to find out why Britain has some of the worst rates in the world and whether more support is needed. A survey by Swansea University, exclusive to Dispatches, suggests that 67% of us think that there's no biological difference between breast milk and formula. Kate meets scientists at Imperial College who have measured the presence of hundreds of vital living components in breast milk that make it so much better for babies than formula. These include natural pain killers, aids to sleep and immune support. She also explores how cuts in public health funding have led to breastfeeding support services closing down.
