Natascha: The Girl In The Cellar - Natascha Kampusch, kidnapped by Wolfgang Priklopil on her way to school in March 1998 and held captive for eight-and-a-half years before she escaped. If counteracting press sensationalism was indeed Kampusch's aim ("What they did to me was a form of abuse too"), the opening minutes did not bode well. It was to be "an exclusive and intimate interview" promised the feverish opening narration of this modern-day freakshow, in which "Natascha reveals for the first time the extent of the abuse she suffered" and for the first time allows a camera crew to accompany her into Priklopil's house, which she now owns.
she gave the programme an unexpected heft and dignity. All the self-possession, serenity and eloquence that had so struck the media when she first emerged from her imprisonment were on display and they are remarkable. Excerpt from guardian.co.uk
