I told you I was Ill: Spike Milligan

2005 | Feature Documentary | 90 mins

Writer/ Director/ Producer: Cathy Henkel
Co-producer Jeff Canin

This is an intimate and deeply personal portrait of Spike Milligan through the eyes of his brother Desmond, his daughters Jane and Laura, and his third wife Shelagh. Through their eyes we see Spike as a father, a big brother, a deeply troubled and difficult husband and a man who trod the thin line between genius and debilitating depression.
