Thanks to Jim Robbins who ths week bares his soul somewhat to tell us about his early life being brought up in a Burnham On Sea Childen’s Home with different regimes there. A glimpse of the early days of Children’s Homes and how young people end up there.

Jim is a bit of a jailbird having done quite a bit of time including in Dartmoor prison where he was involved in a prison riot which was wrongly reported in The Guardian.
