Lawyer Mark Lewis is most famous for being one of the figures at the heart of the phone-hacking scandal some years back, representing over 180 victims including the family of Milly Dowler. He also has multiple sclerosis.

Lewis’s condition has been worsening in recent years. This documentary follows Lewis over a year as he investigates the latest treatments for MS, including visiting a hospital in Jerusalem where new stem-cell treatment has shown some dramatic improvements in patients. Could all this lead to the miracle cure that Lewis is hoping for?

The Search for a Miracle Cure is on Channel 4 at 22.00.
