Philomena Lee in Irish adoption law change call

The film about Philomena Lee's search for her son has won a Bafta, and now it is hoped the film's success will lead to a change in Irish law.

Philomena was one of thousands of unmarried mothers in Ireland who were forced to give up their children for adoption.

Now a campaign set up in her name is trying to force Irish institutions to open up their records.

Chris Buckler reports.
