The Boy from Aleppo who painted the wall

Post by Little John » November 8th, 2014, 3:33 pm

Just heard this surprising powerful drama on radio 4. Its about the war in Syria seen from the eyes of an autistic boy who likes to paint as the world that has always been the same falls apart around him.

A simple story that made me realise how real the conflict is and how we take for granted all the things in our lives that have always been the same - until they change.
Yes this is the real "Little John"

Sounds really interesting John. I don't listen to radio drama but I might try to catch the pod cast.
