New UK TV Drama Packs A Punch
Kid In The Corner - UK Channel 4, 3 parts, Wednesdays 9.00 p.m. from 24th November 1999
Clare Holman (Mum), Eric Byrne (Danny) and Douglas Henshall (Dad)
What a fantastic portrayal of a family living with a child who has ADHD. This first part of three depicts life with Danny (Eric Byrne) prior to learning about ADHD. The program showed in graphic detail, the difficulties faced by the whole family. The accusations of bad parenting, the hurt suffered by parents, child sufferer and siblings. The pain and humiliation dished out by the so called professionals both medical and educational, showed how disheartening and frustrating it is to know that something is wrong with your child and no one believes what you are saying. Also how destructive others behaviour towards the sufferer is, how harmful to the child's self esteem.
Fantastic and sensitive performances by Douglas Henshell (Dad), Clare Holman (Mum) and Eric Byrne (Danny) made it seem even more real. Excellent, can't wait for next weeks episode.
