It may be one of the nation's favourite Sunday-evening delights, but Call the Midwife doesn't hold back from hard-hitting, sensitive and relevant storylines. Backstreet abortion, disability, cot death, racial tension, alcoholism and the thalidomide scandal have all featured in a drama that isn't afraid to explore some of the great social divides of the 50s and 60s - while still finding a message of hope for our times. Join writer and creator Heidi Thomas and cast members Leonie Elliott, Helen George and Jennifer Kirby for a fascinating discussion.
