He highlights the detail of sad lives, which I find neither entertaining nor instructive.
I’d rather look at problems from a distance.
But my wife revels in detail.
She told me today of yesterday morning’s show, which featured a homeless drug addict.
He begged on the street, to get enough money for another fix.
A little boy was walking by with his mummy, and gave him a bottle of water.
He then turned out his pockets and gave him the £2.50 he had in change.
The drug addict has since changed his life around.
