Hi all, some time ago someone posted details of Malcolm & Barbara's story which was being shown on Sky at some unearthly hour.

I understand that they do repeat this from time to time..............Please if anybody knows when this is on again please let me know.........I should be very grateful. Thanks Connie

Angela, Malcolm is still being cared for at home. Barbara fought, and won, the right to funded nursing care at home. As you say it was filmed a long time ago, I think 1999 was the last time. Barbara does sometimes talk to groups interested in A.D. Take care of yourself, and thank you for still caring about the rest of your friends. Connie

My very best wishes to you Angela - it seems Connie has answered the question, and I don't reckon I could have found the info properly... I've been in touch with the Community Channel folk before, but not with Malcolm or Barbara, so I couldn't have found the info. out I'm afraid.

As for weaning yourself off... I'm sure everyone would say keep popping in!

I like coming here, and, as I've said before, I feel that I'm somewhat of an 'outsider' myself not being a 'direct carer'... but I've been made so very welcome in here that I reckon I'm like the Uncle who visits at Xmas... you just CAN'T get shut of me!!! :D

This and the main site is my MAIN source of info re: dementia issues... and apart from that, it's a good place just to chat!

Anyhow - enough blether from me!

Take care.

:)

Just to let you know folks, I haven't forgotten about this thread...

But no reply from The Community Channel regarding when they're showing the documentary again.

But, like my hero Columbo, I WON'T be put off...

I've emailed 'em again!

So WHEN (see? not 'if' - I'm going to badger 'em) they reply I'll let you know.

So get a blank video cassette/recordable DVD ready to tape it!!!
