Storyline

Gynaecologist James Binyon and G.P. Fiona Stone face trial accused of sterilising a fourteen year old girl - Janice Scott - without her mother's permission. Janice has learning difficulties and the prosecution allege that Binyon and Stone sterilised her without revealing to her mother the true nature of the operation, a claim backed by Mrs. Scott. They also claim that Binyon in particular was motivated by eugenicist ideas of "survival of the fittest". Both defendants protest their innocence and insist that Mrs. Scott knew the full facts about her daughter's treatment which was in her own interest and of any children she might have had.
