Glass Houses...

 “Glass Houses is about as ‘real’ as it gets... a series of human tragedies captured in breathtaking detail.”  Binky Myers, Writer.

"This is the kind of story that fascinates me - how a random event, a sudden change in fortunes, sends lives off in new directions. Very dramatic (in every sense of the word). A story that will stay in the mind for a long time.”  Simon Stirling, Script writer.
