Three Girls (BBC)Editor Review
A shocking story, all the more so because it really happened. It is so hard to imagine the mind set of perpetrators of this kind of action. The story looks the experience of the girls and easy it was for them to became vulnerable to grooming for sexual exploitation. There are some extremely sad parts, particularly as Ruby thinks she is loved by one of the abusers, and it is not easy viewing.
It is interesting, but not enormously surprising if you have ever worked in public services, to see how poorly the cases were originally investigated and the fight Sara Robotham (Molly Windsor) had to have to get the issues taken seriously.Multi-agency approaches should improve safeguarding children in the future, although it was thought this would happen after Victoria Climbe and the Children's Act, 2004.
Molly Windsor is superb, demonstrating all the frustration, empathy and anger of a professional caught between fighting professional services and advocating for the young people's best interests. The actresses playing the girls are utterly convincing - a well selected cast, operating within highly plausible set direction.
The classification of 15 is interesting and I can see the difficulties around this decision. I think I would show it children over 13 (depending on their maturity) with parental guidance. Parents watch it first though and forewarn your kids because there is some shocking stuff. It is important opportunity to have a conversation with young people about this issue, which is more common that we often realise.
Brilliantly acted, very moving true story
