Radiomaker and director William English was a good friend of Captain Maurice Seddon. That is apparent from the images shot on 16mm at the beginning of the film and from the smartphone recordings at the end, when English is sitting beside Seddon’s hospital bed. Seddon, who was of noble birth, never recovered from the break between his parents. His chaotic housekeeping looks like a neglected museum of audiovisual media. As an inventor, collector and herbalist, this dapper bachelor developed a completely unique and autonomous way of life. This documentary, which consists partly of TV appearances, is equally wayward and bizarre, both an homage and an experimental media archaeological essay.
