George talks to Ed Mitchell, the ex-ITN presenter and subject of the documentary Saving Ed Mitchell. Ed’s story is one of alcoholism, homelessness, bankruptcy, divorce and ultimately recovery.
The documentary shown in January of 2008 was the beginning of Eds journey to recovery. He describes the experience of bearing his soul on camera, as one of relief and freedom, through the documentary he managed to shed the burdens that had stopped him moving forward and regaining his life. Being thrust back into the public eye, Ed left behind the shame and anonymity that had haunted him on the streets and began to make steps towards recovery.
It’s a great interview, Ed shares many insights into his recovery, the thoughts and processes he has been through and how he is living life today.
Ed’s book, Headlines To Hard Times, is now available and recounts his story and journey and is available from Amazon and all good book stores.
