Living With Mesothelioma -My Diary- BBC’s Breath the Air— to real for comfort Well done to the BBC and Peter Flannery


What a very windy day yesterday. It was gale force and blew everything about. My peg basket, sitting on the ground right through winter, was lifted up and tossed around so now I have to search for all the pegs today. A fence panel needs helping back to position and a solar light needs sticking together with super glue.

We did still go to the park but it was like winter and also trying to stand upright was so hard. Louis lovely fluffy tail was blowing in front of him !!!

We were glad to get back home.

We watched the

Inspector George Gently Series 7: 2. Breathe In the Air

21 2 “Breathe the Air” Produced by Roger Goldby Written by Peter Flannery 6 May 2015
Gently is intrigued as to why a woman has tragically committed suicide. There are too many details that don’t add up, and he suspects murder. Why did this woman, a GP, want to end her life? Gently’s investigation leads him and his team to the discovery of a bigger industrial crime, more murders and more victims. Gently puts his career on the line to uncover who is really to blame.

Detective drama set in 1969. When a woman commits suicide, there are too many details that do not add up. Inspector Gently suspects murder. My goodness this was so true to life my lung hurt me as if Mr Nasty knew he had been found out and was protesting. The other Mesowarriors were all feeling the same. It bought back all the pain for them of loosing their loved ones.

Downton Abbey star Lesley Nicol has ditched her pinny and cap for her guest role in the new series of Inspector George Gently.

An international star thanks to her role as Downton Abbey‘s quick-tempered cook, Mrs Beryl Patmore, Lesley plays tragic housewife Bridget in the BBC1 crime drama, starring Martin Shaw.

Lesley, pictured here playing bingo on the set of Inspector George Gently, said: “I play Bridget, who has lost her only child, Esther, to mesothelioma and is now watching her husband, heartbreakingly played by Nick Woodeson, lose his battle with the same disease. Both Norman and Esther were exposed to dangerously high levels of asbestos in the factory where he worked for many years.”

During the programme viewers will see George (Martin Shaw) led to Bridget’s home during his investigation into the sinister death of a GP who was secretly investigating Asbestos-related illnesses.

Lesley said: “Like most actors I enjoy dressing up for a living! In Inspector George Gently I am playing a 60-year-old woman in the 60s so I had lots of old lady clothes! I got more of a variety than I do in Downton Abbey, as us downstairs don’t get much variety!”

On twitter a friend, Andrew a good Lawyer with Thomsons put he was waiting for them to mention the Times Article of 1965. Well me being me couldnt leave it at that, I went snooping and found it

a very interesting read The senior civil Judge at Cardiff County Court has ruled that employers should have eliminated asbestos dust in their factory within eight months at most of the “watershed” Sunday Times articles of 31 October 1965.

The claimant, in this case, died from mesothelioma in 2001. She had worked on a production line where metal components were made for tin cans. They were dried in ovens with asbestos belts. Asbestos dust was released in the general operation of the oven and the claimant worked three to four feet away.

The defendant had said that the date of knowledge for this sort of danger started in 1968. The claimant had left the factory by then. They also said that this was white asbestos (chrysotile) and that low levels of exposure to that type of asbestos did not have the potential to increase the risk of mesothelioma. http://www.thompsons.law.co.uk/ltext/lb0907-new-asbestos-watershead.htm

Very good and I congratulate the BBC for allowing the Drama and raising the Awareness of Mesothelioma and Asbestos to a new height WELL DONE !!! You have shown the corruption that existed then and still does as we fight to have Asbestos kicked out of our lives Asbestos Specialists @UKASL Tweeted Latest estimates suggest that there is still over 1,000,000 tons of asbestos still in buildings within the UK. Demand protection. ‪#‎asbestos‬.

Well how do we solve the problem and how do we protect the workers who are removing Asbestos out of those buildings.
