The Corrections re-visits four news stories which left the public with an incomplete picture of what really happened.
In August 2017, The Times published a piece with the headline ‘Christian child forced into Muslim foster care’. The story was front-page news the next day as well - and the next – but was it right?

Shappi Khorsandi Gets Organised
Shappi Khorsandi’s life is disorganised. A single mother of two and a stand-up comedian and writer, Shappi is busy. She doesn’t know what money is coming into or out of her account, her love of charity shopping is getting out of control, her prized family photographs are shoved in a box in the back of the wardrobe and the clutter is overwhelming. She's tried the famous Marie Kondo method of tidying up, but it hasn't helped a bit. She hates being disorganised. She wants to do something about it!
Should Shappi just learn to embrace the chaos? Or can professional help put her life in order?

Generation Z and the Art of Self-Maintenance
Generation Z is self-taught. No-one any older really gets that. The children born around the turn of the millennium came into a digital world and had to find out for themselves how to navigate it. Sure, we all live it now - but we weren't formed by it. We came to digital from the safety of adulthood. In this programme, six wise school-leavers take us on their digital journey in their home town of Huddersfield.
Simone has lived there her whole life and is about to leave for university. But before she goes, she's joined by a group of her friends who take us around Huddersfield and back through their digital adolescence. They tell us their stories of self-education, from friendship to flirting, memes to messaging, and talk about the lessons that they had to learn.

The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company has everything the pint-sized hero could need. The shelves are full of grappling hooks, tights, deflector bracelets, and bottles of anti-gravity, invisibility pellets, as well as a full range of superpowers available by tin.
But those in the know head for the trick bookcase at the back of the store. Behind it, there's a secret room where children from 6 to 18 come for writing classes. All levels are catered for - there's free after-school tutoring and homework help, along with weeknight and weekend workshops for budding authors.
The store is part of 826, an American non-profit dedicated to helping children improve their writing skills. It has outposts or "chapters" around the US, each with a different cover story, ranging from robots in Detroit to time-travel in LA.
Cathy FitzGerald visits the New York and Boston chapters to meet the organisation's staff and the brilliant young writers they encourage, including Legacy Thornton, Khatazja Harrison and Tariq Jaden Charles.

The Ballad of the Fix
The story of Scotland's deadly drug crisis narrated by the voice of the narcotic itself. Scotland has the highest rate of reported drug deaths in the European Union. There has been a rapid rise of cheap, imported synthetic drugs - especially Etizolam, an illegal tablet similar to Valium but with an unpredictable potency often many times higher. But why do so many people, especially young men, feel drawn towards this dangerous self-medication? Scottish poet Niall Campbell explores the lives and deaths of a small number of drug users and of their families in Dundee. Using original music by Jon Nicholls and found sound, Niall’s poem weaves through first-hand accounts of the addictive process to create an elegy to the lost and those they leave behind.
The Ballad of the Fix is a companion piece to The Ballad of the Blade (2018) in which Momtaza Mehri listened to the voices of young people involved in knife crime.
