BBC Wales Today: Lifting the Lid on the Care System

Over the course of three years Michael Sheen produced this documentary with BBC Wales on young people’s experiences in the care system in Wales and England. This followed his previous work on petitioning the Welsh government to end the practice of temporarily placing children in unsuitable accommodation such as B&Bs and hostels. The investigation found this is still going on. The documentary tells the stories of three young people who have been through the system.
