Today I watched last night’s episode of The One Show, I normally watch this in the evening but yesterday happened to be out when it was on. I was informed by my son that I should watch it on I Player and did so this morning…. I have to say I am, as usual, disappointed with the BBC because it was such a one sided look at intolerances and allergies and I also felt there was a distinct lack of understanding of how people with a genuine allergy have to cope. It is so easy if you are lucky enough to be able to eat and drink anything and everything that it is difficult to comprehend just how difficult life can be for anyone with an allergy, be it nuts, dairy, wheat etc.
I am not going to bang on about these difficulties as anyone who is the least bit interested only has to read previous posts on this blog to get the drift, but I do think the BBC should present a programme explaining the difficulties of living with an allergy thereby giving all those people who sat and watched the programme last night and were tearing their hair out in frustration at the way it was presented, a chance to put their side of the story. I would also like the presenters to try living the life, for one week, of someone who has an allergy and see for themselves that it is not easy and not to be sneered at.
It will never happen though, will it?
PS: I did register my disgust on The One Show’s blog!
