Forgive And Forget with Lorraine Kelly
The second series of Forgive and Forget with Lorraine Kelly continues in the vein of series one; individuals who face life-changing and challenging situations. Series producer Phil Sime gives us an insight into the idea behind the programme.
Phil Sime - Programme Synopsis:
Forgive and Forget is a 4 part conversation series which is presented by Lorraine Kelly. It will explore the reasons why some people can and others can't forgive and if indeed there is a fine line to what can or can't be forgiven.
Each contributor will consider how important forgiveness is to them and the person they may be forgiving, furthermore the impact on their relationships before and
after forgiveness, if indeed that was possible.
Can complete forgiveness ever actually be achieved or do we always harbour resentment of some form?
One thing I have learned in the making of this series is that as human beings, yes we have the capacity to be bad but more importantly we also have the capacity to be good and where there is good, there must be forgiveness but how many of us know the true meaning of Forgiveness?
Forgiveness is something that most of us take for granted but in actual fact, the power of forgiveness is huge. In the first programme of the new series, Lorraine Kelly talks to Fiona Willox who tragically lost her son Shaun at the age of 18 in a car accident but the car Shaun was travelling in was driven by his uncle who was later charged with death by dangerous driving through alcohol.
As a parent of 2 young children myself, I can't even begin to imagine how you start to rebuild your life never mind trying to find forgiveness but I wonder if it is easier to forgive a family member rather than a complete stranger.
Just by listening to Fiona's tragic story both myself and Lorraine realised that finding forgiveness for someone else can not only set them free but it can also be the first step to rebuilding your own life.
