The many faces of Angela as she appears on that programme we keep going on about (available here if you missed it). Much better than Tuesday’s attempt by the BBC to do exactly the same thing, and not just because it had SellThatStory. We didn’t mind the gently mocking narrator and the arty camerawork. We felt it was an honest account. And the fact that the daughter who grew another head - who gave the programme its title – barely appeared was both clever and ironic. After all, as the programme made clear, sometimes the headline is stronger than the story.
We urged you not to miss it, but if you missed My Daughter Grew Another Head and Other True Life Stories tonight you should click here and rectify the situation. NOW!
