Child Of Mine 10pm, Channel 4
This measured and intimate documentary about stillbirth is a sad and often difficult watch (probably more difficult from some viewers than others; one in 200 UK babies is stillborn). But it’s also an important and carefully considered film, and succeeds not only in showing the pain of this very private and rarely discussed tragedy, but in showing how people slowly move through it. Made with astonishing access to couples who learned during pregnancy that their unborn children might be at risk, the documentary considers some of the medical aspects of such cases. But it’s the parents who make it, including Vicki and her partner Bruce, whose story is followed over several months. “She’s still our baby,” she says, as she holds her newborn, stillborn daughter, Ruby, immediately after delivery.
