Wow, that is more than brilliant! a victory for survivors everywhere and for all the children who were at the Caldicott Prep School.

Tom, i just want to give you a hug, i can see how emotional it was for you to be up there on stage. You are amazing, you really are.

Congrats to all involved!

Lewis, Joel, Jesse,

Thank you so much for your postings - Jesse you were lightening quick! And where did you find that picture - I have not even found that picture!

Lewis - you were quite correct - you see I cannot take compliments - and Brian was saying something nice which unknowingly triggered me.

On the Chosen website - the clip of the award is now embedded but there is also another clip "link" which is a BAFTA interview with Brian the Director and the MD of the production company.

It takes a few moments to load.

http://www.chosen.org.uk/watch_bafta_interview

It was an exhausting evening. I am doing a radio interview tomorrow BBC 5 live - 08.45am but I need to get sleep before then else I'll not be able to think straight.

Jesse,

Please please send me the link to this picture - I am really battling to find stuff - and knew of this and another picture but cannot find any.

Please send me a message with the link - many thanks.

NOW HERE IS AN INTERESTING PIECE OF INFORMATION - IN THE PICTURE THERE ARE FOUR MALE SURVIVORS OF CSA - YOU KNOW THREE.

THE FOURTH IS 'OUT' BUT I'VE NOT ASKED HIS PERMISSION TO IDENTIFY HIM.

Hi Tom:

How did the interviews go? I tried to see if you were listed on BBC5 today, but at 5 am our time this morning, couldn't find you.

Cheers for now.
Jim

This is the Tuesday show and this link only lasts a week. When the player comes up press play move the "slider" to about 2.41 or about then and be patient till it comes on - it should only be a couple of moments. I do not know if this has Geographic limitation or not - obviously I hope not.

I feel I could have done better but there we are. Technical issues intervened which affected my concentration and flow. But it is still ok. This afternoon a TV broadcaster contacted us and they are talking about doing a "special" on the failures we highlighted at the BAFTA's. They referred to it as our "attack on Ed Balls" - who is the Secretary of State for Children Schools and Families.

There are two other opportunities presently being worked on also. So we are moving - but soon it will become difficult again - so we need to take advantage of alomst everything we can now!

Tom,

You were brilliant! And still I sit here heavy in my heart at what you had to say.....

I have long since made my peace with the fact that child sexual abusers will always walk amongst us, as they have since the dawn of time, however, what I cannot reconcile is our that governements only pay lip service to protecting the most fragile in our midst.

If only children had the right to vote - they'd be paid much more attention to by those in power today and who are inadvertantly setting us all up for the prospect of a frightening tomorrow.

Oh geez, I feel a rant coming on, I'd better shut up grin
