Radio H.

After losing his sight in the early 1980s, John Hull began recording an audio diary. Described by neurologist Oliver Sacks as ‘a masterpiece’, his account formed the basis of Peter and James' critically acclaimed feature documentary Notes on Blindness

However, John was not the only member of the Hull household making recordings on audio-cassette during this period. His eldest daughter Imogen was the self-styled presenter of ‘Radio H.’, an ambitious make-believe radio show recorded on her Fisher Price tape recorder.  As a counterpoint to her father’s landmark investigation of blindness, this short film revisits Imogen’s childhood recordings as she reflects on life growing up with a blind father.

An ARCHER’S MARK and FEE FIE FOE production, in co-production with AGAT FILMS & CIE, BRITISH FILM INSTITUTE and ARTE FRANCE.
