  • Don't Take My Baby

    An extraordinary factual drama which tells the story of a disabled couple?s agonising struggle to keep their newborn baby. Based on real life testimony, this emotional tale will call viewers? prejudices and beliefs about the disabled community and society as a whole into question, as we learn about a situation many disabled couples find themselves in as new parents.Can 21 year-old wheelchair user Anna (played by newcomer Ruth Madeley) and partially sighted Tom (played by Adam Long: Happy Valley, Spike Island) provide the everlasting care and attention their daughter needs, or will social worker Belinda (played by Wumni Mosaku: Philomena, Dancing On The Edge, I Am Slave) have to consider alternative care?
