LOUIS TH­ER­OUX: EX­TREME LOVE – DE­MEN­TIA

Doco 8.30pm, ABC2

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Best On The Box - DS – DS

Rarely do you see Th­er­oux as af­fected as he is in this doco as he wit­nesses the con­fu­sion of those suf­fer­ing de­men­tia.

Like Nancy, the feisty former model whose hus­band John wears a name tag, re­mind­ing her daily who he is. He will keep mem­o­ries for both of them.

Hard, yet beau­ti­ful, to watch. – any po­lice force in Aus­tralia. Bud­gets and staff num­bers are un­der threat, but the re­spon­si­bil­ity, dan­ger and ca­ma­raderie are con­stant. Tonight the fo­cus is on traf­fic of­fi­cers in the county of Cam­bridgeshir­e, where amid ar­rest­ing drink drivers, giv­ing gruff warn­ings and is­su­ing speed­ing tick­ets, what is most re­veal­ing is the ban­ter used as a shield to some­how steel of­fi­cers for the in­evitable task they al­ways dread – in­form­ing some­one that a loved one has died in a road ac­ci­dent.
