Phil Lynott's Mom

Sean Keating - An Allegory

In 1949, Philomena, a young Irish emigrant found herself with a black child out of wedlock in a Birmingham mother and baby home - a "workhouse" she calls it - run by the usual assortment of despotic nuns.

Originally an hour long programme from the BBC ripped from their iPlayer (it´s now off-line), I cut most of the part people like Midge Ure and Bruce Dickinson take over the narration, so you get Philomena's gripping tale (the scene where she screams at the church's altar is ripe for a movie adaptation), Philip's childhood and his first band experiences in a black polo necked sweater.
