T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 80% Cher & The Loneliest Elephant (2021) Experts explained that Kavaan's behaviour - rocking from side to side - was a sign of physical and mental distress but the programme was sufficiently sanitised to qualify as family viewing. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death (2021) The film avoided apportioning blame, and instead presented a nuanced picture of a woman who was so much more fragile than her public persona suggested. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Rhod Gilbert: Stand Up to Infertility (2021) Hopefully he's changed his mind, because he has done a great thing by bringing the subject out in the open. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 91% The Mystery Of DB Cooper (2020) It wasn't a film about the identity of DB Cooper, but about the power of myth, the unreliability of memory and our desperation to believe in something. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Welcome to Chechnya (2020) Welcome to Chechnya: The Gay Purge. brought home the horror with a dramatic urgency. David France's grimly compelling film was a docu-thriller, with heart-stopping moments as activists spirited people out of the country in clandestine operations. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

5/5 No Score Yet The Night Notre Dame Burned (2020) It was all brought vividly to life in words, photographs and illustrations(one of the surprise interviewees was the Paris fire department sketch artist who accompanied the crew into the building). - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Agatha and the Midnight Murders (2020) All of the characters' behavior felt a little weird, and it was not clear if that was by accident or design. Some were caricatures while others were barely there. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% The Unbelievable Story of Carl Beech (2020) Engle talks good interviews out of people. Here, she persuaded those who have never spoken on camera before -- Lord Brittan's wife, Diana, and Beech's ex-wife, Dawn -- to speak candidly about what had happened. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

2/5 40% The Trial of Alex Salmond (2020) Wark is a first-class journalist with a cool head, but her investment in this particular story seemed to veer into the personal. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

5/5 100% The Life and Times of Captain Sir Tom (2020) Perhaps one of the lessons of the programme is that elderly people have fascinating stories to tell, and we should spend more time listening to them. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Surviving the Virus: My Brother & Me (2020) It was a clear, compassionate and helpful film. But the main takeaway was that doctors still do not fully understand this virus. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Anthony (2020) The brilliance of McGovern's piece was in the structure: an alternative universe imagining the life that Anthony could have lived, told in reverse chronology. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Sitting in Limbo (2020) There was a happy ending, if you could call it that: Bryan was allowed to remain in his own country. But the film left us in no doubt about the emotional toll. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

5/5 100% The Tiger Who Came to Tea (2019) Child actor Clara Ross was a lovely, natural Sophie. The rest of the cast, including Tamsin Greig and Benedict Cumberbatch, were understated. Even the Robbie Williams song was pleasingly restrained. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Susan Hill's Ghost Story (2019) I watched this one alone with the lights off, willing myself to be frightened. No such luck: I found myself idly admiring Adam's radiators and wondering about his heating bills. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 52% A Christmas Carol (2019) This was clearly aiming to be more than a predictable period drama. Hurrah for that, because what is the point in remaking something unless you're going to bring something different to the table? - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% The Case of Sally Challen (2019) Bit by bit, the film meticulously built the case for the defence, as her lawyers set out to explain how a housewife with no history of violence could commit such a horrific act. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

5/5 92% Elizabeth is Missing (2019) The drama achieved two important things: providing a truthful portrayal of the condition, and reminding people caring for those with dementia that they are not alone. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 77% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) We have watched these three growing up and their performances have never been better -- particularly Grint, who gets the opportunity to do more than just play for laughs. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

82% Avatar (2009) For true cinematic spectacle, Avatar is out of this world. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT
