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.
