Thank you Mother - it should have read that Charlie put on old gramaphone records of Ivor Novello, learnt the words, then sang them.  This is another avenue to his ability and of course, others that contacted Savant Syndrome.

I'd come across savants before, but had never heard of the condition being acquired after surviving a condition that would normally be fatal.  He certainly was a remarkable individual.  I hope that you (or someone in your family) has documented his story for future generations to read (or is going to).

RIP 1949-10th January 2013

Best Wishes,  Nick.

I too enjoyed Steve's programme. What a lovely discovery to make, and plenty to tell your own children and grandchildren  ;)
I would also like to know how much of the research is given to the families after the programme. For instance, do you get a 'family tree' print-out? Do you get the certificates? How marvellous if you do, and it might even start a new generation of genealogists  ;D


No research, certificates or family tree given to me so far - but you never know  :)

That's a bit disappointing for you then, but maybe they will send you copies soon  :)
Fingers crossed anyway  :)

Have you asked for them?  Maybe they don't just dish them out

Good idea.................  just as another aside, most of the paperwork / photos shown in the programme were given to the film company by me.  They came into my possession when my Dad died last year.

In that case it would be only fair for them to return the favour and give you copies of your family tree and any certificates they got.  After all that information is of no further use to them is it?
I'd ask about it if I were you....nothing ventured, nothing gained, as they say  ;)
