    Re: What are you watching on TV?

    Been watching 'A Yorkshire Farm' on C5, about the Owen Family (including 9 kids) who run and live on a farm on a very remote part of N Yorks. all the family help out on the farm, including the youngest who was two and quite happily feeding lambs and helping with lambing.

    Any-one else watch 'Care' on BBC1 on Sunday1, about a lady (Alison Steadman) who suffers a life changing stroke, and subsequently develops Dementia. It follows her and her families struggle to deal with the aftermath, and subsequent dealings with the NHS as they try to find ways to get care for her. For me, it concentrated too little on the human side & cost of caring for some-one in this situation (although more and more people nowadays have experience of caring for some-one with Alzheimers) , and too much on showing the NHS in a very poor light. We all know the difficulties the NHS & Local Authorities face in terms of providing the right care, especially for elderly people, but it showed them as uncaring and simply interested in creating empty beds.

    I work in the NHS so I tend to avoid these kind of dramas, too close to home and when they get it wrong, it's so annoying, especially when they paint us all in a bad light! There are plenty of caring people left. I like Sheridan Smith though.

    I've been watching The Long Song, which is about the slave trade on BBC 1. I decided to watch it, as one of my cousin's ancestors were involved in the sugar trade.

    Is it good stell? I missed the first episode but was thinking I might watch it on catch up (if I ever have time to sit down and watch TV!!)

    I have discovered 'Luther' ... obviously heard of it and I know lots of people who rave about it but I had never seen it! So when the box sets came to iplayer I decided I would watch ... absolutely brilliant!! I can now understand why everyone raves about it. Hoping to have time to watch the other series at some point as I want to watch the new series in January!

    Thanks for the reminder. I had forgotten all about season 3 starting. I'll make sure I watch it on catchup. It is more gorey than it needs to be though.

    The 3rd and final series of Fortitude did not quite live up to my expectations, disappointing there are only 4 episodes. However it is still good,yet to see Condour. I thought the "Care" Drama whilst not really getting balance right struck a chord and was well acted. Obviously controversy though,the Royal College of Occupational Therapists felt it done their profession an injustice whilst recognising the programme wished to highlight care system shortages in a dramatic context. The Alzheimer's society said it reflected the struggles of many people with dementia.

    no doubt it did much to highlight the difficulties people face when care is needed that involves the NHS or the local authorities. to me the biggest problem is that the type of care Alzheimers sufferers (like my Mother) changes constantly, we started off getting her into a day centre one day per week (to get her out of the house), within 7 years she could not be left in the house on her own. Each time we wanted to increase the care package we needed another assessment, got a different case worker, funding allocations moved so it was always a battle. What disappointed me about the drama was that they finally managed to find her a placement in a home obviously unsuitable for a dementia/stroke sufferer, it was more like a Retirement home. It gave a false impression as to what options there are. For most, it's the cheapest care home the Council can afford (like the first she was placed in, and escaped from).

    Yeah live TV subtitles are awful. One of reason I never watch TV news. Prefer read on BBC News website. I don't know how accurate USA live subtitles are but I know from Apple Live Event their live subtitles (they call it captions over there) are amazing! So accurate and keep up with timing and also like recorded programme instead of live.

    Yeah I disappointed by that. BBC call New Year Day episode as special but it isn't even special because it part of series. It 10th episode of series. Specials always been separate from series. Past Christmas specials not part of series, they in between previous and next series. It shame there no more Doctor Who specials anymore.
