China Girl by Tom Fry
Episode 4
It is 1999 and Nick and Naomi have adopted a Chinese baby. But things are not going smoothly. The baby can't settle and then a chance remark at a Millennium party starts Nick thinking that maybe they aren't doing enough about Miranda's original culture.

Producer/Director Gary Brown

The one child policy in China means that there are many abandoned babies, and most of these are female. Scriptwriter Tom Fry (co-creator of R4's long running series Brief Lives) adopted two Chinese baby girls in the 1990s and these events are the springboard for this fictional drama.

Starring real life partners Sophie Thompson and Richard Lumsden, this touching drama charts the highs and lows of a middle aged couple bringing a Chinese baby into England.
