The tragic story of Brian Davis, a Cambridge educated journalist and published author who became the editor of a major trade publication. He then lost everything after succumbing to alcoholism, including the roof over his head, and found himself living on the streets.
This poignant documentary by the BBC successfully shows that addiction knows no socio-economic boundaries, Davis was a highly educated man with a hugely successful career, he’d reached the top of his profession but then reached the bottom of the ladder in the game of life.
Brian Davis had dined with the actor Cary Grant, interviewed Ridley Scott, been a regular face at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, and would end up dead lying in the courtyard of a cheap London hotel. He’d fallen 30 feet, nobody knows whether he fell or jumped.
