Sensitively portrayed, but not baulking at its subject., 16 May 2006
Author: Trapper_John from United Kingdom

I was quite young [7 - 9 years of age] when these events took place, and remember the dreadful feelings that were prevalent. Before this drama was screened, I was not sure it would be possible to dramatize such an horrific episode without it coming across in a way that either glossed over or overemphasized many aspects. However, I feel this was a well pitched production. For me it has gone a small way towards dealing with something that has been uncomfortable to think about in recent times, when those involved were for one reason or another in the news. I don't think it would be appropriate for the full details to be made public in a television programme, but hopefully there was enough to be informative yet not too distressing. I hope the families concerned did not find the drama hurtful, and that it didn't reopen deep wounds for them - probably a vain hope, unfortunately.
