I didn't see last night's programme but went on 4 player with my morning cuppa.Last night's wasn't there so caught up with an earlier episode.I now will look terrible(or more so
) all day as I ended up blubbing.It was the episode (Episode 2 series 2) where the very wealthy family from Bucks help a single parent family in debt.If I had seen a trailer perhaps I might have cringed at how "set up" it could have been.Actually it was very moving and all who were involved were very genuine people.
What struck me from the point of view of what we discuss on this site, is how bright and lovely both girls were; the one living in poverty and the privileged child.
So much gets said on threads about the behaviour/ intelligence of children who don't have the same opportunities as some of their more privileged counterparts.These two girls with their differing circumstances and(without the programme's help) very different futures, show that less advantaged children can be just as bright, full of social skills, confidence,manners, imagination and joie de vivre.
A really good programme and will watch the episode from last night as soon as it goes on 4 player.
