Factual. Documentary following the lives of two Deaf men and their families who are affected by Parkinson’s. 1 in every 500 people will develop Parkinson’s in their lives, which means the brain cells involved in movement start to die. There is no cure. Because of the effect on movement, Parkinson’s can also affect communication in BSL users. John explains how he realised he might have Parkinson's, which his mother also had before him. Meanwhile, Cliff was diagnosed with Parkinson’s five years ago. Both men explain the effect on themselves and their families in this emotional yet revealing programme.
