The Wee Barra Boy !

Did anyone see it last night ,,,?
The wee 5-year old boy who was born before .,,.
Calum I think he was called ,,, Started to tell his mum in Glasgow as soon as he was able to talk that he had lived before on the island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides with his mum, dad brothers and sister ,,, and wouldn't stop going on about it ,, even described everything, the house, the place ,, the beach with aeroplanes landing on it ! even the dog ! Told his Glasgow mum that he had "fallen through a hole" and arrived here in Glasgow. They took him to various analysts etc to try and find out more ,,, but eventually they decided to take him to Barra ,.,..
He was just 5 ,,, it was riviting TV and so spooky ,,,
Almost everything he'd described was there ,,, the house, his mum and dad's name as previous owners ( in the 60's ) even the bloody dog was connected with the house ,.,. The only bit he got wrong ( apparently ) was that he said his dad had been knocked down and killed by a car ,,, ( but could that maybe have been himself ? Alas no record of such a thing ...)
His wee face was just so sad, traumatised, scared, full of expectation when he went into his old home ,,,, I fancy he really thought he'd find his old family waiting for him ,.,.,.
A strange, strange tale ??

of course given it was on tv the chances of me catching it before all 3 kids have left home are slight :-(
