"The Stranger on the Bridge"

"The Stranger on the Bridge"

A few weeks ago, Channel 4 aired a documentary called The Stranger on the Bridge  about one man’s quest to find the man who talked him down of Waterloo Bridge.

On 14th January 2008, Jonny Benjamin was 20 years old and recently diagnosed with schizophrenia. He left a hospital and took a train to London where he was planning to throw himself off Waterloo Bridge. A passerby saw him and started to talk to him and managed to talk him off the bridge. In 2014, Jonny launched a campaign to find the man who talked him off the bridge, he didn’t know his name and the events around it were hazy for him. So he called him “Mike” and launched the campaigned #findingmike.

His search went viral and the production company, Postcard Productions, filmed his journey and search. Initially the documentary was released on Youtube but then it was picked up by Channel 4.
