The first 2 episodes of this program have been shown in Australia and I just love it. I can very much relate to these characters, they are very real characters. Just one gripe. I absolutely love the music they use in the show but they never credit the pieces or players. I know that one was a Bach piece played by Glenn Gould, but not one I've heard before. If anyone can help with the music I'd really appreciate a list. I do hope there are more programs like this coming up, such a wonderful change from the violent, sadistic crime shows we seem to get swamped with these days. I am getting rather concerned with the obsession we have with really nasty subjects not to mention the 'Big Brother, 'Biggest Loser' rubbish and others like it. I'd encourage more like 'Sensitive Skin' which is just such a refreshing change. Delighted and want more like it.
