Series 1, Episode 1 - One Day In The Life Of Rosie Yates

It's a typical Saturday for the family, starting with an attempt to get Rosie to the park for some fresh air. She refuses to cooperate, instead biting and clawing at her parents, running across the road then lying down and refusing point blank to move.

Further details

Rosie Yates is a nine-year-old girl with severe learning disability due to an undiagnosed chromosomal disorder, living with her dad Simon, mum Emily and brother Ben.

It's a typical Saturday for the family, one which revolves around trying to get Rosie to do simple things - go to the park for some fresh air, eat her lunch, go to bed. Rosie leaves a trail of destruction in her wake, ramping up Simon's stress - in his short-sighted attempts to get her to go to sleep too early, he only makes things worse.

An earlier timeline shows how Simon and Emily first confront the inescapable truth that something is wrong with their baby daughter.
