In So Many Words

by Teresa Goff and Karen Levine (The Sunday Edition, CBC, 2002)

At the age of 48, Teresa Goff's father had a stroke that left him largely unable to speak. After years of relearning how to communicate with her father, she took out her microphone to talk to him about his condition, their relationship, what the stroke took away, and what it offered him in return.

"In So Many Words" won the Radio Impact Award in the 2004 Third Coast Festival/Richard H. Driehaus competition.

by Allan Coukell (Radio New Zealand, 2002)

"Grey Ghost" won a Best Documentary: Honorable Mention Award in the 2002 Third Coast Festival/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation competition.
