That's terrible. I always thought the BBC were good at researching topics before making programmes about such things. I don't think most people have a clue what we go through with this condition. To be honest, I had no idea either, until after I was diagnosed and did lots of research. I suppose it's the same with most diseases.....unless you're affected, or a family member/close friend is suffering, we don't bother to find out much about it. Like MS, I don't really know how people with this condition go about their daily lives, even though it's similar to Parkinson's.
Pleased to hear you complained though.
