TV: Notes from the Inside

Permanent Linkby 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.

I hope it works for everyone who wants to watch it. And isn't locked to the UK only.

We think too much and feel too little.
 More than machinery, we need humanity.
 More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.
