Indeed. Surprised they have physical as well as the obvious mental problems.

Have CH4 even mentioned what the desease is called? And is it fate that 2 brothers got it? I assume this will be explained

very sad for both them and their families. Imagine suddenly being unable to work out how to get out of the shower.

As always with these programmes, massive praise due for the people that look after folks like these two brothers, both the families and the professionals.

They've gone absolutely mad with the logo blur though - finding it quite distracting. What does it really matter if we see the tiniest logo on someone's t-shirt

Very sad but tbh the guy with the daughter isnt as badly affected as I thiought he may be. Its sad because they both obviouslly know what they once had . I was suprised too that they had physical symptoms. Will it affect their life expectancy.?

I knew Mike, but I lost touch with him about twelve years back. The first I knew of his condition was when I saw a news report featuring him and his brother. What a terrible thing to happen.

It's a C4 freak show, so it affects about 10 people worldwide.

I saw a documentary last year about this family, is this a repeat?

Very sad but huge respect for the Clark parents. Imagine starting a new life in Spain when your family is all off your hands and having some time to yourself. Then having to come back to the cold and damp and care for your 2 adult sons who need as much care as when they were toddlers.

I was so pleased they got rehoused. They absolutely deserve that.
