Took a pile of signing home so that I could watch this programme. It was a drama dealing with the subject of elder abuse and was part of the programmes connected with this year's Comic Relief. I am really pleased that this subject is receiving more profile as it is one that is all too often ignored. The Health Select Committee produced a very useful report and the Government is - at long last - undertaking some research but the results will not be known for some time.
