  • STRANGE BEHAVIOURS: TOURETTE'S AND OTHER DISORDERS

DESCRIPTION

Four people talk frankly about their mental disorders and disabilities in this touching documentary. 

In the UK, Dee from Tonbridge avoids all emotional experiences in fear that it will trigger his narcolepsy; while in Berwick-upon-Tweed, father-of-four Paul reveals how Tourette’s has affected his relationships

Elsewhere, aspiring designer Bethany is gradually making herself bald because of her disorder; and two men with autism battle to overcome their communication problems and join forces to question society’s attitudes towards them.

Strange Behaviour: Tourette’s And Other Disorders premieres on Thursday 24 May at 9pm and is part of our Extreme Lives Season.
