This may sound like a spin-off from the hit comedy stage show The Play That Goes Wrong, but this is actually a documentary series about dementia.

With most people diagnosed with dementia under 65 retiring early, many are written out of jobs before their time. This programme follows 14 volunteers with the condition working in a pop-up restaurant in Bristol, working under the guidance of Michelin-starred chef Josh Eggleton, to show that people with dementia can still carry on working – despite the obvious problems such as not completing orders or forgetting reservations.

The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes is on Channel 4 at 21.00.
