Brain injuries on TV tonight

I have just found out that tonight on BBC2 there is a programme on recovering from brain injury and I thought this may be of interest.

It is called Louis Theroux: a different brain and will be broadcast at 9pm.  The reporter meets people recovering from brain injuries, spending time at Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust, discovering the challenges they face.

More information about the Trust can be found at

If you miss it you should be able to catch up on BBC i player, still freely available via computers and tablets for 30 days.

Four films on disability to be shown by BBC

The BBC have announces a series of films over the coming months on disability. One of these follows the Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton’s brother who has cerebral palsy and wants to be a racing driver too, and another a couple with cerebral palsy about to have their second baby.

The executive producer of the series says:

“This season is about ordinary disabled people dealing with the same everyday challenges that everyone faces – leaving home, choosing a career, raising a family.”

Programmes will be on BBC1 and Radio Five Live starting with Nic Hamilton on 6 March.

Its a shame that all four will be broadcast at 10.35pm and not earlier in the schedules.
