A three-part drama is airing this week at 9pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

QUOTE
Three Girls tells the story of three of the children who were victims in the 2012 grooming and sex trafficking case in Rochdale.

Holly (Molly Windsor) is new to Rochdale and keen to make friends and fit in. She finds herself drawn into a world she cannot escape, despite her pleas for help.

Itís a world that is all too familiar to sexual health worker Sara (Maxine Peake), who has been recording and reporting cases of child abuse for years.

Three Girls is made with the full cooperation of the victims and their families, aims to tell the victimsí stories; how they were failed by authorities directly responsible for their protection and how the abuse has impacted on their lives.


After they did a fab job with depicting the events of Shannon Matthews in The Moorside earlier this year, hopefully this will be good too!

Did anyone see this last night? Harrowing viewing but rather good and based on actual events and police statements and interviews. Awful how they didn't really believe Holly after she said she'd had sex before.

Parts 2 and 3 tonight and tomorrow.

Really surprised at the lack of response here. I'm late in watching but this is honestly one of the best things I've seen in a long time. So gripping, but very emotional and hard to watch at times.

Definitely one of the best shows of the year! As you say difficult to watch but very gripping and emotional!

Oh I ADORED this! Very disturbing watch in places but such a gripping representation and it was nice to see justice of a sort in the end.
