Summary " ... an intimate and deeply personal portrait of comic genius Spike Milligan, the troubled man dubbed "the godfather of modern comedy" and one part of the legenday The Goons. Seen through the eyes of his brother, three daughters and third wife, "I told you I was ill" also features interviews with Michael Palin, Joanna Lumley, Eric Sykes and Eddie Izzard. For the first time, his family has opened up its personal archives to reveal Spike as a brilliant, tortured and visionary man who trod the thin line between genius and debilitating depression. "I told you I was ill" reveals the real Spike Milligan: visionary, comic, writer, father, husband, Knight of the Realm, and the most famous manic-depressive in England."--ABC-TV website.
