Dementia, Louis Theroux & making a documentary about children with autism.

I read with great interest this article in todays The Daily Telegraph as my mother in law has recently been diagnosed as having dementia and it has been very sad for my husband ringing up to hear slightly odd or disturbing stories about what has happened during each day.

This article is a fascinatingly honest account of a journalist getting to the heart of some heart rendering stories of what it means to be human: the meaning of love and loyalty; the duties and limits of parenthood and marriage; as well as exploring the nature of identity.

I will watch the programme – although I think we will find it occasionally felt awkward and embarrassing as well a moving and hopeful.

‘Louis Theroux: Extreme Love’ begins on BBC Two on Thursday 19 April at 9.00pm
