Description: A series of programmes focusing on the human and literary adventure of Juann Mamo.

The programmes explore, among other things, his relations with British colonialism, Manuel Dimech and the Left; Maltese emigration in the beginning of the 20th century and how it affected those that left and those that stayed behind; the life that he wanted to live and his frequently controversial writings in the newspapers.
