 Thursday 14th March 2019:  King of Thieves

 King of Thieves

A famous thief in his younger years, 77 year old widower Brian Reader pulls together a band of misfit criminals to plot an unprecedented burglary at the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit.  The thieves, all in their 60s and 70s except for one, employ their old-school thieving skills to plan the heist over the Easter holiday weekend.  Posing as servicemen, they enter the deposit, neutralise the alarms, and proceed to drill a hole into the wall of the safe.  Two days later, they manage to escape with allegedly over £200 million worth of stolen jewels and money.  When police are called to the scene and the investigation starts, the cracks between the misfit gang members begin to show as they row over how to share the goods and become increasingly distrustful of each other.

Thursday 11th April 2019.  The Children Act

The Children Act

Fiona Maye is a judge in the High Court of Justice of England and Wales. A case is brought before her involving a 17-year-old boy, Adam Henry, who is suffering from leukemia.  Adam's doctors want to perform a blood transfusion, as that will allow them to use more drugs to cure him.  However, Adam and his parents are Jehovah's Witnesses, and believe that having a blood transfusion is against biblical principles.  Fiona goes to the hospital to see Adam.  The two talk, with Fiona attempting to determine what it is that Adam really wants, and whether he has been persuaded by his parents.  Adam starts to play "Down by the Salley Gardens", which Fiona then sings.  Adam is very drawn to Fiona, and begs her not to leave. Fiona nevertheless leaves, and returns to court. She rules that, as a matter of law, Adam's welfare is the "paramount consideration" and declares that the medical treatment, including blood transfusion, is lawful despite the absence of Adam's consent and that of his parents.

Meanwhile, Fiona's marriage is failing.  Her husband, Jack, has said that he wants to have an affair with a colleague.  He has become tired of Fiona constantly working and never having time for him.

The transfusion is successful, and Adam is released from the hospital.  He leaves many messages for Fiona, saying that she has changed the way that he thinks about the world.  He follows her to work one day, and gives her various poems and letters that he has written.  She tells him to stop following her, as he is still young and has his whole life in front of him.  

style="text-align: left; padding-left: 30px;">Fiona performs at a concert in London.  Just before she is due to play, she gets a note saying that Adam has relapsed and may not make it through the night.  She performs "Down by the Salley Gardens", before running to the hospital to see him.  Adam has refused another blood transfusion, saying that it is his choice.
