Shortly before death, George Fredrick Handel (1685-1759), old, blind, portly, sometimes raging and usually reflective, narrates a look back over his life. As he tells his story, his music plays as background or is performed on screen.

OK presentation of G. F Handel's personal memoirs ("almost"). With Trevor Howard doing a fine job chewing through a script by playwright John Osborne. Summed up nicely by the phrase "It was always my policy, even as a small boy, never to willingly fart in front of ladies." Not that there's anything wrong with the visuals but it may have been better as a radio play.
