I Just Want To Thank You


Listen to Radio 4's Saturday Live programme and you will find a slot dedicated to listener's calling in to say a special thank you. It has a very simple common thread. Each of them has found themselves in some form of distress and a stranger has stepped in to help.

There is a truly amazing range of ways people manage to get themselves into difficulty. Lost keys, car breakdowns, being taken ill are some of the more common through to runaway caravans and a wedding ring lost at the beach (found by a passing scuba diver). Whatever the problem, it was truly distressing for the people involved and later on reflection they notice something important. They just don't feel they gave enough thanks and also worry they don't know the name of the person who helped them. There is a gap and they feel the need to recognise it and hopefully fill it.
