DIGITAL PROGRAMME

John: a film by David Clegg. Performed by Peter Marinker. 

 David Clegg, whose mother suffered from dementia, worked for ten years in Care Homes. In his spare time he interviewed some of the more articulate residents. The transcripts were eventually re-recorded by actors and broadcast on Resonance Radio. 

One of these came from John who was able to describe his own dementia. David Clegg developed this into a short film as seen from the perspective of the bedridden John, with the voice of actor and broadcaster Peter Marinker, a popular regular at BIG LIT. We are delighted to add this short, moving film to our digital programme.
