: ' MY LEFT FOOT'

The story of Christy Brown
Compiled from his book and from recordings by Marianne Helweg
Produced by Eileen Capel
This is a story of remarkable achievement. Christy Brown , now aged twenty-one, the son of a Dublin bricklayer, was born with a brain injury which made him unable to sit, stand, walk, talk, or use his hands. At the age of five, however, with his left foot he snatched a crayon from his sister's hand and started to draw on a slate. Under his mother's guidance, he learned through the use of his left foot, to write, paint, and to read. Recently he has been attending a Dublin clinic where he is learning to walk and to talk.
Christy Brown has described his life in his recently published book; the programme consists of recordings from this, and recordings of his mother, father, brothers, sisters, and friends.

Cast in order of speaking:
The Ray Ellington Quartet
Max Geldray
Orchestra conducted by Wally Stott
Announcer, Wallace Greenslade
Script by Spike Milligan Production by Peter Eton
After forty-three years at school young Ned Seagoon returns to Seagoon's Folly, the ancestral home, to find it empty save for a sinister oriental valet, a refugee heroin importer, and Gravely Headstone, the butler. Where is Seagoon's father, his four mothers, the first cook, the under-footman and the over-footman? All Ned's queries are met with silence. Then one night three mysterious strangers are seen digging a grave nearly fifty-foot long in the rose-garden. Hollow knockings and weird moans are heard in the buttery and Strangler Aagonschmidt, a notorious schizophrenic, is discovered in the act of setting fire to the library. Why is there a secret passage from the grave to Seagoon's bedroom? What is the secret of ' The Canal'?

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
