What happens when couples split up acrimoniously? This BBC2 series is a hard, but absorbing watch
This often emotional three-part series turns the spotlight on the National Family Mediation service, which helps separated couples resolve disputes in order to prevent a messy court case.
First up, cameras follow Peter and Sue after their 28-year marriage ended when Sue started a relationship with Peter’s former boss, while Nicky and Martin are rowing over when he can see their two young sons.
Finally, Vicky and Jason are at loggerheads over their little girl’s upbringing and Irene, their super-patient mediator, has to flit between two separate rooms as they can’t even bear to sit down together.
