I remember seeing this drama-doc quite a few years ago now and it was very engaging subject matter without a doubt. Very good and natural performance from Valentine Pelka as Young Freud. This actor has done a lot of good work since and I've also seen him in other drama-docs. He has a good 'face-for-film'. I don't think the director Stacey Marking made any subsequent drama-docs. I think this was one of a whole series of introductions to various historical figures which Channel four undertook in the late Eighties. Locations were good. Would be great to see it repeated sometime. The drama-doc is an interesting medium as the drama is usually engaging though sometimes one wonders if it would have been just as good or even better as a straight documentary.
