Fabulous performance, thought provoking press intrusion themes.
11 December 2014 | by RoegueSee all my reviews

No-one living in North Bristol at the time of these events just a few years ago could support the first two somewhat negative reviews of this piece. We were there. It was our local news story become a national monster. Allowing for inevitable dramatic licence, it seemed to be an accurate reflection of how events and the shameless excesses of the rabid tabloid press conspired to vilify an admittedly eccentric, but ultimately innocent, private, local man.. The themes of press freedom vs press intrusion are slightly skimmed over as the producers and writers concentrate more on showing just how the 'freedom of the press' becomes used as an excuse to justify the insinuation of the media into the lives of private individuals under the guise of satisfying the 'public interest', whilst in reality just being a vehicle for the peddling of cheap gossip, innuendo and character assassination in the pursuit of shifting copy for profit.
