Congratulations to our recent President, Gwyneth Hughes, whose latest screenplay for the BBC “Three families” has won star reviews. Dealing bravely with the personal tragedies behind the abortion laws in Northern Ireland, Gwyneth could hardly have picked a more controversial or agonising subject – but it clearly struck home, beating ITV’s Royal Documentary in the ratings.
“….an enlightening, excruciating expose. It favours nuance over shallow polemics, and does justice to women’s stories without reducing them to parables. Unmissable.” The Independent
“…it is the mark of a good drama that hours after you have watched it you realise that you still feel angry” The Times
