Asbestos in Schools


A small selection of film and voice documentaries on asbestos in schools and interviews with victims of mesothelioma.

Technical and copyright constraints prevent showing many of the interviews, documentaries and features there have been, including those on Teachers' TV but this selection is an example.

We would like to thank the reporters for the care they have taken to get facts accurate and avoid exaggeration. We would also like to thank them for giving victims and families a voice and treating them with care and compassion.

It seems to us one of the highest duties of the press is to expose dangerous maladministration - particularly when it concerns children and teachers. Our thanks go to these producers and reporters.
