WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT MY AMAZING BRAIN: RICHARD’S WAR
January 15, 2020
Dr Kate Holmes, Assistant Director of the Stroke Association
‘Richard’s War’ should be essential viewing for everyone working in stroke. It’s a powerful and beautifully drawn portrait of stroke survival. We know that with the right support people can make very meaningful progress months, even years, after the stroke happens. The extent of Richard’s recovery defied the expectations of many and he could go further. Our knowledge and awareness of brain plasticity and potential recovery needs to improve. This fascinating film challenges our understanding about rehabilitation. Richard is truly extraordinary, but maybe he’s not an exception.
Melanie Reid - The Times
“ Unmissable, inspirational telly”
(the) documentary is wonderful…try swallowing that lump in your throat when Fiona proudly announces that Richard can swallow puree, or the moment when he moves his fingers for the first time. Magical.”
“An extraordinary document of both personal fortitude and scientific endeavour…”
