One to One

Series 4 - Episode 4



Paddy O'Connell conducts a selection of interviews exploring the impact of emotional upheaval on family life, and begins by speaking to Chantal, who was widowed in 1995, and left to bring up three children alone. Drawing on the experience of losing his own father at a young age, Paddy encourages her to discuss the various milestones a widow must pass, including whether to remove her wedding rings, and deciding what role a departed partner's memory can play - for both good and ill - in defining the dynamic of a new relationship.
