Paxman - Putting Up With Parkinsons

Paxman – Putting Up with Parkinson’s, will follow Jeremy Paxman’s story of living with Parkinson’s disease since his formal diagnosis, 18 months ago.

For the very first time, Jeremy Paxman will allow cameras into his life as he reflects on how Parkinson’s is impacting him.

In this one-off, 60 minute special, Jeremy speaks to other high profile people living with Parkinson’s, meets the President of Parkinson’s UK, Jane Asher, attends an English National Ballet therapy dance class – and learns to play bowls.

Jeremy meets experts who are at the leading edge of research, including observing a brain dissection.

1 in 37 people in the UK will be diagnosed in their lifetime and Jeremy investigates and busts some of the myths surrounding the illness.

Paxman – Putting Up with Parkinson’s – Tuesday at 9.00pm on ITV.
