Hacksaw Ridge

Wednesday 9pm – 11.35pm, Channel 5

Some 11 years after after his epic fall from grace in 2006 following a drunk-driving incident and anti-semitic rants, Mel Gibson returned to Hollywood with the fact based film Hacksaw Ridge. His return, whilst targeted at the US markets, was filmed in Australia and took the amazing story of Desmond T. Doss to the big screen. Gibson’s efforts in an olive branch to Hollywood certainly worked - for this film he received six Oscar nominations, one of which was for best Director. The Story of Desmond Doss is absolutely incredible and Gibson really has done credit in promoting an amazing fete of personal discipline, bravery and demonstrating that nothing is impossible with the right resolve and determination.

Wednesday 9pm – 10.05pm, Channel 4

It’s hard to believe that it has been 10 years since the UK woke up to the sad news Jade Goody had passed away, she died peacefully in her sleep following a short, but very public battle with cervical cancer. She was a household name in Britain and had a rollercoaster life, she was born in Bermondsey and it is safe to see she had a very rough childhood - she spent much of her young life looking after her disabled mother, Jackiey Budden, who lost the use of her left arm and an eye in a motorbike accident. Jade recalls how she often missed school to care for her mother, hiding stolen goods as police raided their home and when she did go to school her mother often visited denouncing that she had hit Jade. Her rough upbringing was further compounded by her drug addict father leaving the family when she was just 2 years old, he died in 2005 at the age of 42 after an overdose, Jade recalls how he ‘didn’t have a single vain left in his body’ by the time he died.

George Clarke’s Council House Scandal

Tuesday 9pm - 10pm, Channel 4

It has been 100 years since the Health Minister, Lord Addison created the concept and built council houses. He paved the way for the introduction of The Housing Act 1919, which allowed funding for councils to build half a million homes over three years. It was this action that established the principle of large scale, state-funded provision of council housing at low rents. Today however, council housing is at an all time low, with only 2 million properties across the country, a huge drop from 6 million in 1980. The dramatic decrease in affordable housing has left thousands of families across the UK living in appalling temporary accommodation, including 100000 children passing from room to room on almost a daily basis.
