Did You See ?
Little lady fauntleroy
JAMES Harries was a broadcaster's dream.
Looking like a young Mozart, this precocious 10-year-old with a gift for collecting antiques was a feature on programmes such as Wogan, where he often entertained (and mostly irritated) with his self-importance and at times, arrogant attitude.
Time has moved on and Keith Allen's update on James, now Lauren, and the rest of the Harries family, proved entertaining as he first integrated himself into the family only to expose them in a dramatic finale for their lack of qualifications, or rather the validity of the qualifications they had either purchased or presented themselves.
It was quite sad at times as Lauren seemed oblivious to Allen's questioning, preferring to use the programme as a vehicle to promote herself, whilst Allen's voice-over pulled no punches as he ridiculed both Lauren and her family.
However ridiculous this family appeared, and very funny and entertaining this programme was, you couldn't help feeling sorry for them. However eccentric they may appear, they didn't deserve to suffer some prejudiced locals who were making their lives hell.
