Are You Having a Laugh? TV and Disability (2010)

Film details


A humorous and irreverent look at the way disability has been portrayed on television over the last 50 years. From Sandy in Crossroads to Brenda in The Office, looks at how the subject has been done well, how it has been done badly and how box ticking and the odd token wheelchair has helped this process. Looks at the astonishing journey from Ironside to Cast Offs, Monty Python to The Office and Little Britain. ©BBC Publicity
