Synopsis
In his heyday as a top television news broadcaster, Ed Mitchell interviewed high-profile politicians such as Margaret Thatcher, John Major and Tony Blair. He commanded a six-figure salary, travelled the world and had a seemingly perfect family life. But, behind the scenes, Ed was battling demons that would eventually take over his life as he slid into alcoholism, debt and, ultimately, homelessness. This is the astonishing true story of the newscaster who became known as the white-collar tramp.
