Present Imperfect - For Better For Worse. Figgy Fox
The new Keith Moon? His background was unpromising. he was a drug addict, alcoholic and mental patient.
Hoping to put all that behind him in this BBC documentary he embarks on a marriage to Jackie, which brings his three children together with her five. But he is one of those maddening characters, all charm and no application, who keeps threatening to turn over a new leaf only to return to the bad old ways. The job goes, the band breaks up and he is back on the booze. Even the tolerant Jackie is near the end of her patience.
The story is told partly through commentary, partly through direct speech to the camera, but mostly through that familiar character in television documetary, the fly on the wall.
