TV: Notes from the Inside by Ada on Mon Sep 23, 2013 8:48 pm
I watched this Channel 4 music / psych documentary yesterday evening. I usually struggle with TV or movies to stay focused. Something will trigger a daydreaming burst. And I'll have to take a break halfway through. For this programme I got through all 47 minutes without doing that!
The summary goes- "Classical pianist and former psychiatric patient James Rhodes takes a grand piano into a psychiatric hospital to play pieces he hopes will resonate with individual patients." Yes it could be very wanky. But it genuinely isn't. I really enjoyed it.
Major Trigger Warnings! Discussions of suicidal feelings and attempts, self-harm, sexual abuse, self-medication.
Also the "normal" emotional manipulation of documentary / reality TV. But it might only be me who's hypersensitive to that.
[You'll need to copy and paste, no live links in blogs!]
I hope it works for everyone who wants to watch it. And isn't locked to the UK only.
