In an excerpt from an episode of the ABC TV series Blackout (1991), Archie and his foster sister Mary Cox talk about Archie discovering he had a love of music.

This beautiful segment is created with great sensitivity. It's impossible not to be moved by the recollections of his foster sister and Archie's memories of the first morning with the Cox family.

The use of photos from the time is important as it identifies the foster parents, and the inclusion of the church gives context to the story.
