Anyone watching? I stumbled on it while flicking channels, the true story of a man with learning difficulties making his way through an incredible life in
Stoke on Trent, really heartwarming.

I watched it when it was on a while ago and loved it! Was trying to remember the name of it this morning funnily enough. Enjoy!

I am going to cry in a moment...

Awww. My DS has AS and wants to be a clown when he grows up, loves football too, so do I. Can't believe I hadn't heard of him before. What a lovely way to end Christmas Day.

Fantastic tv. Tears in my eyes still.

It was brilliant. Best programme I've seen for a long time.

It was absolutely fantastic, wasn't it?

Having NB in it as well.

I think I read somewhere that he also visited Prince Edward!

I remember him from university days. A real character. Those were the days

Oh and the interview with Lou Macari about the new Scottish player!
An "unknown quantity" and "not I the best of condition"!

I'm hoping it's on Iplayer so I can watch it again as I missed the first 15 minutes.

Lou Macari signs a striker

It was indeed marvellous! Loved it, and so did DH, who really warmed to Lou Macari (and I have never heard him say anything nice about a United legend).

Thought the way they did it was great too - with the real NB and the singing. Fab.

I watched it when it was on a couple of months ago and raved to my friends and family about it, I thought it was a brilliant programme and it made me very watery eyed. What a remarkable man Neil is.

I watched It a couple of months ago too and wished I'd have known it was on again as I'd have watched it again. Makes me miss uni days as I used to see/speak to Neil most days. He'd always come and support us when we were competing.

My mom raved about a couple of months ago so we made a point of watching and loved it. Always fun to spot places you know.

It's wonderful- really great well made film of a lovely guy.

Watched when it was on in September as DS at Keele and we don't live too far away either so is very relevant.
Loved it and must re watch on I player.
According to DS Neil d's till around on campus frequently.
