The BBC are transmitting a documentary about dealing with CSA as an adult. Entitled "Breaking The Silence - A Film By Jimmy Edmonds" is being shown as part of the "One Life" series. The press release for the documentary reads:

"In the late fifties and early sixties I was sexually abused by my maths teacher at a boys boarding school in East Sussex and by a priest at my local church.


But for over 40 years, I have kept the abuse a secret - too ashamed to tell people for fear of how they’d judge me. However, eighteen months ago, I decided to confront my past as I was convinced it was the reason my brothers and I weren’t close. I knew one of my brothers Ned had been abused and suspected the other Tom, may have been. I was sure the abuse we had suffered had created a void between us where we couldn’t bear to be in each others company for fear of evoking old memories.


“Breaking the Silence” follows my attempts to mend my relationships with my brothers and to confront the events of our childhood – it has not been not an easy journey. As painful memories re-surface , so have old fears and resentments. A major source of contention between us is the question of whether or not we should reveal our secret to our mother, now aged 89".

It is being shown on BBC One on the 7th June at 10.40pm.
