    What a fantastic programme. I have experienced loneliness and isolation when I was in my teens and when I was bringing up my son entirely alone. it was the most saddening and loneliest time of my life.
    It’s so good to see something on tv bringing to light the affects of loneliness.
    there’s still much love out there. and programmes like this could start something wonderful.
