Lost Children

10:00pm Tuesday, August 7 on C4

High Close School in Berkshire, run by Barnardo’s, is home to some of the country’s most troubled children. With intimate access to staff, pupils and families, this two-part documentary series tells the surprising and touching stories of two of the school’s most challenging children. Filmed over a year, the programmes follow the ups and downs of their education at school and explore their family histories. This film features the story of 14-year-old Josh, who was taken away from his heroin-addicted mum and put into care at the age of three. As the story of Josh’s past unfolds, tensions escalate at school, and he brings his adoptive mother closer to breaking point.
