Roger Dowds: Millionaire Winner

Roger Dowds wasn't exactly an obvious pick for a game show contestant. He'd lived a quiet, sheltered life and had little faith in himself.

Roger Dowds wasn't exactly an obvious pick for a game show contestant. He'd lived a quiet, sheltered life and had little faith in himself.

So it was surprising to everyone, including himself, when he was picked for Ireland's popular version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, and even more surprising how he changed as his winnings accrued.

Roger Dowds: Millionaire Winner won a Best Documentary: Honorable Mention Award in the 2006 Third Coast Festival/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.
