Thalidomide - The fifty year fight

I am in a BBC documentary programme next week (and my pictures in the TV Times too apparently!). 

It's a programme about Thalidomide (the drug which caused my impairment), and not told from the "usual perspective". 

It features interviews with individuals whose lives have been impacted upon as a result of Thalidomide, as well as some of the historical stuff surrounding the manufacture and marketing of the drug (possibly how it's being used today also?)

BBC2, Thursday 15th May at 9pm.

It's called "Thalidomide: The 50 year fight"

I think my Mum may be in it too. She did take part in the filming.

I'll send out another reminder next week!
