A first-hand account of a child abused from a young age This programme, the first of two, tells the true story of a child, born and brought up in a county in the Midlands, who was consistently abused by her parent from the earliest age. That child is now a young woman. For reasons of confidentiality, her story is recounted by an actor. The story is interspersed with interviews, conducted by the young woman herself, who remains anonymous, in which professionals tell how they intervene in cases of child abuse in ways which, alas, did not happen in the case of the interviewer herself. This programme takes the story up to the age of 11 in the childs life.
