Saving Ed Mitchell - Friday 18 January

Saving Ed Mitchell
Friday 18 January 2008 8:00pm – 8:30pm on ITV1.

In December 2007 it emerged that former ITN newsman Ed Mitchell was living homeless on the streets of Brighton.

In Saving Ed Mitchell his friend and former ITN colleague Carol Barnes sets out to discover why Mitchell’s life has taken such a dramatic turn.

Barnes – famously photographed with Mitchell in Downing St back in the early 1980s – paid Mitchell a surprise visit and the cameras followed him before he checked the Priory in a bid to conquer his alcoholism.

The 30 minute film has been made by TwoFour Productions and the executive producers are Joe Houlihan and Emma Morgan.

Saving Ed Mitchell was commissioned by ITV controller of documentaries Jeff Anderson and will air later this month.
