I am writing to you this evening having just watched one of the best pieces of television that I have seen in a very long time!
The BBC’s two part documentary Harry’s Arctic Heroes follows four injured servicemen as they take on one of the world’s most fearsome and ferocious challenges- hiking across the
Arctic to The North Pole for duration of four weeks.
The men have a variety of injuries, from arm and leg amputations, to spinal injuries.
It truly is must see viewing and is available on BBC IPlayer for at least a week, with part two on BBC 1 at 9pm next Tuesday.
I urge you to watch this programme, as it focuses a lot upon the emotional side of becoming disabled far more than the actual physical activity of trekking to The North Pole and proving that they can still achieve a physical challenge.
As I have been stressing and ramming down your throats for the last two months, the boys featured agree with me that becoming disabled has much greater ramifications emotionally even more so than it does physically.
Please take an hour out of your week to watch that which is in my opinion an extremely well rounded and well made programme, with obviously an extremely inspiring subject matter at its core.
Good night everyone. Speak to you tomorrow.
