China Girl by Tom Fry
Episode 5
Nick and Naomi are finding it hard. The baby is unsettled and they feel guilty. Desperate for a way to connect with their adopted daughter, they consult a Chinese doctor

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.
