Series 1-4 of the BBC Radio 4 legal drama, starring Claire Rushbrook and Clare Corbett. Behind Closed Doors is a courtroom drama with a difference - it centres around civil law, not criminal. In these nine plays, London barrister Rebecca Nyman takes on cases ranging from workplace harassment to the sensitive, secret trial of a terrorist and a morally complex �right to die� hearing. In Series 1, Nyman represents a senior policewoman in a case of sexist bullying at work in 'One of the Lads', while 'Tilting the Odds' sees her helping an equine vet accused of serious professional misconduct. In 'Safe House', a suspected terrorist has his movement and activities severely restricted by the security services - can Nyman clear his name so he can get his life back? Series 2 features 'A Bad Night Out', in which a man claiming wrongful arrest seeks police compensation; 'Excluded', which sees a teenager facing permanent exclusion from school; and 'Catastrophic Injury', in which a mother claims her baby�s cerebral palsy is due to medical negligence and is fighting the hospital for compensation. In Series 3�s 'Contact', a sperm donor is trying to get a court order to allow him to see 'his' daughter, but Nyman�s client, the mother, wants him to keep his distance. In 'Section', the barrister hopes to convince a tribunal that a patient who has spent seven years in a secure mental hospital is fit to be released. And in 'Protection', Rebecca represents a man whose wife has been in a minimally conscious state for over three years - should she be allowed to die? Written by award-winning dramatist Clara Glynn, these nine compelling dramas provide an intriguing glimpse into the little-known world of civil litigation, with all its challenges, complexities and controversies. In Series 4's Emily Cross has a history of anorexia. After collapsing at a Tube Station she has been admitted to an eating disorder unit for the third time. Emily is in a perilous state but refusing treatment. The hospital has come to court to argue that unless they are allowed to treat her she could die. Should she be force fed? Barrister Rebecca Nyman is in court acting for the Official Solicitor to look after the patient�s interests.
