Actor Pam Ferris calls on government to help carers

Actor Pam Ferris - of Darling Buds of May and Little Dorrit fame - explains the isolation suffered by carers, and calls on the new government to provide respite cover and financial support for volunteers who save the country billions of money each year.

She has been a carer twice and is vice president of the Princess Royal Trust for Carers.

Each week Daily Politics offers a platform to a famous person to make a film with their views on a subject before debating their ideas in the studio with political guests.
