The Missing Children
At the Tuam mother and baby home in Ireland, 796 babies, born to unwed mothers, have disappeared. The bodies of some have been found in a sewage tank. The Missing Children tells the extraordinary and moving stories of some of the children who survived life at the home – some still recall the cruelty of the nuns, other only discovered they had been adopted and brought up in the US after the story broke. Through the personal narratives of survivors, adoptees, and the woman who pieced together the evidence that has shaken Ireland to its core, and led to an unprecedented apology from the Irish State, The Missing Children uncovers the truth of this shocking story which continues to affect the lives of many living in Ireland, the UK and US.
The documentary special airs on ITV in November and is a Nevision co-production with True Vision.
