"The choice to care or be cared for is one that faces over half of us and some stage in our lives.
Mark Tully presents an edition of Something Understood to explore that choice and to discuss the emotional, practical and spiritual costs and rewards of caring and being cared for. He examines the benefits and the responsibilities felt within such relationships in the company of Jean and Geoffrey Almond, a couple living with the consequences of Multiple Sclerosis, and with poetry by a variety of carers as well as music from Shostakovich, Elmer Bernstein and folk-singer Kate Rusby."
