The Best Of Men

Still on the subject of the Paralympics, you might like to know that BBC Two is showing The Best Of Men this evening at 9pm. This is a 90-minute film about Dr Ludwig Guttmann's groundbreaking introduction of sport into the rehabilitation of paralysed WWII soldiers at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. The BBC describes it as an "entertaining drama". Critical translation: jokes with bite. Judging by a short film clip (CLICK) it looks worth the effort of switching on the TV. Makes a change! I'm puzzled by the fact that Auntie doesn't credit the script writer. Group effort? A woman?
