Camera Off begins with David's Matchbox, a tale of psychosis and love – The Story podcast

Camera Off is the new mini series from The Story, our podcast dedicated to bringing you great documentaries, investigation and long-form storytelling.
In this first episode we hear the powerful tale of Chris and Michael brought together across generations, cultures and continents through the strange twists and turns of mental illness, hallucinations, and love.

Michael was at medical school when he was gripped by paranoid schizophrenia which left him at the mercy of the voices in his head. He survived on the streets of New York for 10 years by believing he was part of a special intelligence force working to stop George Bush’s evil plot to take over the world, until he hears the voice of Britain’s Queen.
