A 'Prime Time Investigates' programme 'Home Truths' on the state of nursing home care prompted a national debate on how the elderly were being looked after in some nursing homes.

Using a hidden camera, reporter Cathal Gallagher, a qualified care worker, filmed shocking conditions and work practices in the Leas Cross nursing home at Swords, Dublin.

Shown here is the introduction to the 'Home Truths' programme presented by Adrian Lydon.
