Wonderland: The Trouble with Love and Sex

This is a TV programme that looks like it could well be worth watching. It's on BBC2 on Wednesday 11th May at 9pm. To quote the BBC - 

"The first full-length animated documentary made for British television takes us inside the counselling rooms of Relate, as clients wrestle with champagne soaked fantasies and impotence, with dark family secrets and shocking confessions of infidelity.
With their true identities hidden behind the animation, thirty-somethings Ian and Mandy reveal they can barely stand to be in the same room together. Long-term singleton and serial romantic Dave is falling in love with yet another woman he can't bring himself to ask out. And fifty-one year old Iain is struggling to work out why his wife isn't having sex with him. Can Relate counselling help any of them"

I've got a lot of time for Relate. I worked for them as a counsellor, trainer and training development officer in the late eighties and nineties, and was a client with them before that too, so I've pretty much got the full set! There's something very exciting about working with a relationship in the room, and I'm now wondering whether I'd like to go back to that sort of work again. Either way, this is a programme that I'll be watching.
