As a child, Helen Keller was not only blind, deaf and dumb but so uncontrollable that her parents were on the verge of sending her to an asylum.
Instead, they hired
Annie Sullivan , a remarkable young woman, herself half-blind, who with infinite patience, determination and love rescued Helen from her misery and darkness.
This new version of William Gibson 's powerful and moving drama stars Patty Duke Astin , who won an Oscar in 1962 for her performance as Helen Keller , and who now plays Helen's dedicated teacher.

'Charlie 23 calling Charlie 9. There's a dead bloke in a doorway in Wardour Street. The police have sealed it off and I can't get my dustcart through.'
'Charlie 32 to Charlie 24. I've had a woman on the phone and she's complaining bitterly that she's slipped on some pigeon's muck in Trafalgar Square. Can you get the sweeper to put some sand down?'
'Charlie' is the radio call sign for the City of Westminster's Cleansing Department. It's their job to clear the average 800 tonnes of rubbish that piles up in Central London every day.
Whatever ends up on the streets of the city, no matter how dirty or dangerous, it's a job for the boys (and girls) from the smelly stuff.
