Panorama and Dispatches - Monday 30th July 2012Both programmes are about Sickness and Disability Benefits

This is information, rather than a question, but since a lot of questions are about ESA, I thought you'd be interested to know about it.

Both are on Monday 30th July

Dispatches. 8pm, Channel 4

“Using undercover filming, reporter Jackie Long investigates the shocking processes used to assess whether sickness and disability benefit claimants should be declared fit for work.”

Disabled or faking it? 8.30pm, BBC2

“Panorama investigates the government's plans to end the so-called 'sick note culture' and their attempts to get millions of people off disability benefits and into work. In Britain's modern welfare state, millions are being paid to private companies to assess sick and disabled claimants but is the system working? Or are new tests wrongly victimising those who deserve support the most?”

I think Dispatches might be for an hour, which will mean that it runs at the same time as Panorama, but I might be wrong.
