Laurence Clark documentary - BBC1

Comedian Laurence Clark and his wife Adele both have cerebral palsy. When they had their baby boy, Tom, six years ago they were criticised by doctors for being irresponsible because Laurence is wheelchair-user and Adele is heavily dependent on her crutches. Adele is pregnant again and this time she is determined to have a natural birth.For six months we follow Laurence, Tom and Adele in a film that lays bare the joys… and hurdles… of disabled parenting.

The documentary (1x50) was commissioned by Danny Cohen, Controller, BBC One and Charlotte Moore, Commissioning Editor for Documentaries and BBC Three. The commissioning executive at the BBC is Sam Anthony and Elspeth O’Hare is executive producing for IWC Media.
