July 2015 marks the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings in London, which killed 52 people and injured more than 700. It was the greatest loss of life in a British terrorist attack since the Lockerbie bombing in 1988. Ten years on, BBC One commemorates this tragic event on Sunday night with the poignant and captivating new drama A Song For Jenny, starring HH client GWILYM LEE.

A Song For Jenny is the true story of Bristol vicar Julie Nicholson’s response when her daughter Jenny was killed in the July 7 bombing at Edgware Road tube station. Starring Emily Watson as Julie, the drama details the dramatic and profound impact of violence on one woman and a family. GWILYM plays Jenny’s grieving fiancé James.

Frank McGuinness has adapted the script from Julie’s book of the same name, creating a moving and precise exploration of a mother’s responses, from the moment she hears about the attacks, to the news that her daughter is missing, to the confirmation that Jenny is among the dead. Julie and her family experience hope, denial, acceptance of grim reality, the anguish of grief and a final desire not to be broken and to honour Jenny.

A Song For Jenny is a gruelling piece of drama and a mesmerising watch. Make sure you tune in on Sunday night – 5th July, 9pm on BBC One. Here’s the trailer:
