This week: Dingleton
Before tranquilliser drugs were invented - before strait jackets were discarded - before padded cells were dismantled - Dingleton Hospital on the Scottish Borders won international fame for its ' open door ' policy.
Since then patients have been treated as adults, with a say in their own - and other patients' - treatment, bosses have been abolished and replaced with a democratic system that gives everyone a voice. Sensitivity sessions and group therapy are sometimes dramatic and violent happenings at Dingleton. They often produce significant results.
JIM DOUGLAS HENRY and a Man Alive team filmed in Dingleton-where a quiet revolution has overthrown conventional power structures and traditional methods of treatment.

A ' 'Yesterday's Witness ' that makes you bless the day they invented the box (OBSERVER)
By the time Alexandra Tolstoy was born her father had written most of his great novels. She is his last surviving child and the twelfth of his 13 children.
In this film she movingly recalls the years she was Tolstoy's secretary and confidante. Life for the Tolstoy family on their country estate south of Moscow was often turbulent. Alexandra stood in the middle of the battle which developed between her parents, and tried to protect her father against the excesses of his wife's hysteria. In 1910, tired and sick, Tolstoy took the step he had contemplated for so many years - and left for the Caucasus to search for peace and solitude. He fell ill on the way and was put to bed in a station-master's cottage. Alexandra was with him during those last few days as he died.
