Shrink Rap

Two years ago Chris Langham was at the pinnacle of his career as a comedy writer and performer, receiving two Bafta awards in one night. Three days later he was charged with downloading child pornography. The high-profile case turned him into one of the most infamous men in Britain and his career fell apart.

Addicted to drugs and alcohol for more than 20 years, Langham dramatically claimed during his trial to have been the victim of childhood sexual abuse. He was sentenced to ten months, later reduced to six on appeal. Only days after his release from prison, Langham agreed to be interviewed by clinical psychologist Dr Pamela Connolly - who, as comedian Pamela Stephenson, was his co-star on the first series of the BBC's Not The 9 O'Clock News.

In this revealing interview, Langham describes a painful past, speaking openly about the abuse he endured as a child, his addictions, his trial and subsequent imprisonment. Describing his reasoning behind the actions which led to his conviction, Langham reflects on what it feels like to be convicted of a crime considered "a worse taboo than murder".
