This week: Resolutions
Every New Year's Day we tell ourselves, as we face another 365 days, that we'll change this; reorder that; be different or better. But the resolve is one thing and the fact is a very different matter.
In the last twelve months of Man Alive programmes we've heard a great deal of resolve, seen a great many promises and good intentions demonstrated. There have also been a number of fascinating characters whose future was a question-mark which would certainly bear looking at again. What happened to the people? How did things work out for them? Have promises been kept or have all those middle-of-the-year resolutions gone the way that most New Year's resolutions do?
In tonight's programme Man Alive looks back at some of the people, the problems, and the promises of the last twelve months-and reports progress.
