brilliant series
25 October 2011 | by lindeeSee all my reviews

I too remember this series,I always wondered why they never re-run it,even today it would make compulsive viewing,I remember the one about the one getting starved in the attic it got to the stage that she even ate a spider as she got so hungry and the woman sitting on the stairs eating the dinner that was meant for the women in the attic can you imagine being that hungry and smelling a cooked dinner through the door. I think my parents stopped me watching the rest of the series, has I think they thought it was too disturbing for me it's funny how programmes like this stay with you I'm 50 now I so I must have been 10,when it was on Television,but was it BBC or ITV
