    Warning - this may be a programme that is upsetting for PIP claimants, or those awaiting a PIP assessment.

    On the other hand, it at least shows you how useless the assessors are. But that's really scary, since then you know how little chance to have to get PIP unless you're ready to go through Mandatory Reconsideration (which they don't mention) and then go to Tribunal (which they do mention I think).

    Available for 29 days.

    It should be kept for longer in my view - does give some idea of how awful the whole thing is. But copyright I guess.

    Some programmes do stay around but need searched for.
    Adam Curtis' "Bitter Lake" was accessible fir 2 years, but needed a bit of searching.
