Painful beyond belief; THE TOP TV TOPICS with paddy shennan, the man with the remote.
"I THINK I was in shock like everyone else... it's just beyond words, really, that two 10-year-old boys could be so evil" (James Bulger: A Mother's Story, ITV, Thursday).
It was beyond words then and it's still beyond words now, 25 years on.
And Denise Fergus's pain was unimaginable at the time of her son's murder - and remains unimaginable today.
Her words here were so powerful and so heartbreaking - none more so than when she was describing the day of two-year-old James's funeral.
"That was one of the hardest days of my life...it's heartbreaking, you are just thinking to yourself: 'It should be me in that casket, not you'."
No one could put themselves in Denise's beyond-painful position, and no one would want to. This harrowing programme was a reminder of that.
