Frankie Miller – The Brigton Bhoy (documentary)

Frankie Miller 1980s

Frankie Miller is one of Scotland’s best known singer-songwriters who was a major recording star (and sometime actor) in the 1970s and early ’80s, best known for his renditions of the songs ‘Caledonia’ and ‘Darlin’.

Frankie comes from Bridgeton and attended Sacred Heart School in the area – the school that Brother Walfrid was the first headmaster of and home to the first Poor Children’s Dinner Table which Celtic were established to raise funds for.  He is a very well known Celtic supporter and was a long-term drinking pal of Jinky back in the day as well as friend of Billy Connolly, Rod Steward and many other entertainers.

This is an insightful documentary into Frankie’s life and career as well as the impact that a brain haemorrage in 1994 had on him and his partner Annette, thanks to whose love and support Frankie survived and has recovered to an extent that was initially thought by medics to be unimaginable.
