In January 2013 journalist Andrew Marr suffered a huge stroke that almost took his life. This documentary follows not just his road to recovery, but also features him trying to how the brain works in order to further his recovery.

The programme sees Marr undergoing his treatment, trying to regain movement in the left-hand side of his body, especially in his left arm, by doing nursery school puzzles. This is just part of the long process Marr has been going through for over four years.

Marr also meets fellow survivors of strokes, some of whom are undergoing treatment in the USA that some hope may result in them being fully healed.

Andrew Marr: My Brain and Me is on BBC Two at 21.00.
