I also watched it but I have to say that I was not comfortable watching some one else's suffering. That said know I have seen the first episode I am compelled to watch the rest of the series. A bit like watching a Lassy come Home film I always have to watch to the end.
Would I have tuned in prior to Trevor's dx, yes I would but then I also watch One Born Every minute on the other hand Trevor wouldn't watch either of these programmes either before dx and especially not know.
So perhaps I just have a fascination for life's real moments IE the entering and leaving of this world.
The cynique in me did notice that the programme makers had covered all there bases to appeal to as wider audience as possible. I am hoping this isn't just to boost channel 4's ratings
The black man with prostate cancer , 11 children and no long term partner to care for him.
The middle class lady with breast cancer and marriage problems
The man with lung cancer still puffing away
The Mum coming to terms with leaving her children
All very emotive and done with sensitivity.
NEVER LAUGH AT A LIVE DRAGON
Thanked 1 time
Good post julie
I also would have watched this program and like Trevor Eric wouldn't he would watch Lassie though.
Did you watch the couple on This Morning Program who are taking part in the documentry , to me they were very real to me being honest and open one of the conversations that his wife had struck a cord with me being lonely and when dx terminal some people dont even contact them now others feel he's past the time he had left he must be ok now I can relate to that one also lost his business another tick people avoiding you because they dont know what to say another tick one of my nieghbours I could. sence she was avoiding me lately so I asked her why she said.I dont know what to say to you how about just hello I have not changed I not the type to put my problems on anyone but it does make me sad when people choose to walk on bye without a smile or a nod we are still the same people.
I hope that conversation will be on the program and people watching will understand how lonely this journey is.
