OFF TOPIC is for any news story not directly linked to PCSO issues, off duty leisure pursuits. Sailing down the Thames. Playing computer games or basket weaving.
I'm quite happy to admit that London's Burning is a programme I've never watched, but it doesn't surprise, shock or disgust me that a soap opera wants to hang onto the coat-tails of a recent news event and make some capital out of it.
Yes I did. Seemed to be no different from the usual pap that is written to accompany soaps that have pretensions to be "docu-dramas"...dingdangdo wrote:
Did you look at the link Arthur?
Oh dear......This drama is the story of what happened, based on the testimony of some of those who were there.
Drawing on witness testimonies and interviews, the drama weaves together half a dozen narratives, and is based on accounts from those who live or work in Clapham: the hairdresser, the party shop owner, the family man, the music shop keeper.
Their accounts are fascinating, revelatory and compelling. They are vivid testimonies to the enduring values of humanity: courage, compassion, determination, kindness and tolerance.
