Season 2 Episode 7 Dave Pickering: Documenting His Dad's Life Story and Dementia

Penny meets Dave Pickering, storyteller and award winning podcaster, who’s been making audio recordings of his dad, Peter, for years. As a former documentary maker himself, Peter has always enjoyed being involved in Dave’s work and rarely said no to an interview. Listening back to all they’ve done together, Dave discovered that he’d not only captured Peter’s life and their own close relationship, but also, without realising, had recorded his dad’s dementia journey from its very earliest stages. With Peter now in his 90s, these recordings, spanning several decades, have come together in a new 18 part mini-series, Down to a Sunless Sea: Memories of my Dad.
