N.B. this episode contains direct examples of abuse in care occurring across the last 100 years in Victoria. Listeners may find this material distressing. The language used in the period covered to describe people with disability is now highly offensive. Direct quotes retain the use of these terms because they are revealing of past attitudes and understandings of intellectual disability.
