Alex Brooker: Disability and Me – 31 August 2021 – 31/8/2021 – Tuesday – BBC Two

In this intimate and personal documentary, comedian and TV presenter Alex Brooker examines his disability to acknowledge for the first time how much it impacts on who he is and his life. Alex revisits key moments from his past, uncovering both joyful and difficult memories. Having conversations with family and friends that he has never had before, Alex engages with elements of his disability he has avoided until now. Turning to the present, Alex explores what it really means to be disabled in the UK today. Admitting that he knows he is out of touch with many people’s disability experience, Alex comes face to face with the lives of disabled Brits around the country to see the reality of day-to-day life – from prejudice and lack of support to resilience, camaraderie and just ‘being me’. Alex looks to the future, finally able to address his concerns around his own health and mobility and ready to explore what medical options might be available to him.
