Bonding/End Of Empire stuff...
10 April 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Austere civil servant Alan Bates returns from India to resume his relationship with his young son...

This rather obscure BBC Screen One was aired once and thrown in the archives (though I understand copies were made available on DVD by a daily newspaper in Spain). Really it concerns the bonding between Bate's empire minded father and the son to whom he appears a rather forbidding, formal stranger.

There are some very good scenes - when Bates buys his son a toy train set and then appropriates it for himself as a reminder of the authority he once had in India (re the title, Losing Track). And I liked the possibilities of his growing relationship with his son's governess and housekeeper.

It's all very civilised and nicely handled and, though the final scene doesn't come as a complete surprise, it's worth seeing.
