This week: 1970: Gale is Dead
The fourth in a short season from earlier programmes.
Gale was beautiful, intelligent and - according to everyone who knew her-had much to offer; everything to live for. At 19, a drug addict, she was found dead in the basement of a derelict house in Chelsea. The Man Alive team first met her in 1969 when making a programme about people who had been brought up in children's homes. After she died the people who were in her life and those who cared for her in and out of various institutions examined the short and hopeless life of a girl who many tried to help but in the end felt she belonged to no one. They asked: need she have died?
