BBC All in the Mind kicks off with race, law and suicide

A new season of BBC Radio 4’s All in the Mind has just started and begins with a discussion of a fantastic study that used a version of the popular children’s game Guess Who? to investigate the social niceties of discussing race.

The programme also tackles the UK’s new mental health act and the alarmingly high rate of suicide in older women in Britain’s South Asian communities.

Despite being presented by the brilliant Claudia Hammond, it’s still not quite as good as its Australian namesake and still has a slightly parochial feel to it.

However, it is also known for flashes of brilliance and there should be a few of those in the coming weeks as the new season progresses.
