20th March 2014 By: Rose Palmer

The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families' Medical Director, Dr Dickon Bevington, discusses the emotional challenges currently faced by young people in a live BBC Radio 3 programme.

He joins presenter Phillip Dodd, Frank Field MP, and children’s authors Meg Rosoff and Philip Ridley in a debate about childhood as both a ‘golden age’ and a darker, more damaging time that scars us; how much do we really remember about our childhoods, and how do our childhood imaginations live on within us?

The show was broadcast live from a pop-up studio in London’s Royal Festival Hall on Wednesday 19th March at 10pm.

Listen to the programme.
