Summary:PROG 6: AFTERSHOCK
The stress of dealing daily with human tragedy has always been a part of life in the emergency services, but until recently there was no recognised way of dealing with it. Fire-fighters BRIAN GOODFELLOW and KEITH HERBERT were among the first on the scene at Moorgate in 1975 when a packed underground train ran into a blind tunnel. Both found themselves suffering post traumatic stress disorders. DAVID FROST and TONY EDWARD suffered similar experiences after the 1989 Hillsborough disaster - 37 police officers on duty at Hillsborough that day have sued their own Chief Constable for compensation.
