after taping this because my wife was moaning she wanted to watch it,all i can say is thank god i did,it was a decent film that the whole family watched together and again its brings the message home to what happened over there all those years ago-and how the children are still paying for it-there's a part where the wife says what I've spent on that could feed a whole family over there for a month,it certainly makes you think,myself and my wife have already acquired about becoming host parents-and we all know its not easy as in the program,but they say a month over here can give them a extra year in there life-and to me thats important,but if you want to watch it-then do its terrific- noggy-manchester
