On the publication of a biography of Brendan Behan, author Ulick O'Connor and broadcaster Andy O'Mahony discuss the writer.

O'Connor and O'Mahony discuss how Behan became trapped by his public image. For O'Connor, Behan became weaker as a writer as he was physically weakened by drink and diabetes. O'Connor feels that later he was no longer able to get in touch with his real self.

Brendan's thing was mime, song, story. He was a one man show in himself.
