What's it like to be a child of an alcoholic?

Richard Morgan is a BBC Northern Ireland reporter, and he followed in the footsteps of his father, David Morgan, who was a highly respected journalist.

David was also an alcoholic and died three years ago due to his alcoholism.

In a new documentary for BBC Sounds, Richard looked back on the impact his drinking had on the family, and shared his personal story of trying to come to terms with the anger he felt after his dad's death.

He spoke to Ivan about the journey he's been on.
