The broadcaster continues his celebration of Victorian reformers by focusing on their efforts to stamp out the widespread exploitation of youngsters. He explores developments prompted by Thomas Barnardo in the field of child protection, WT Stead's contribution to the raising of the age of consent, and the Earl of Shaftesbury's campaign to prevent young workers being sent down mines.
