We are Enabled by Design: TV and Disability

Today mark’s the fourth and final installment of the “We are Enabled by Design” video series. Last but no means least, is Kate Monaghan from markthree media, who joined us to talk about a programme her team produced for BBC2, called ‘Are you having a laugh? TV and Disability’. The programme was aired on 25th June, taking a lighthearted look at how disability has been portrayed on television over the past 40 years. Here Kate speaks about the inspiration for the
programme, as well as some of the stereotypes she’s experienced as a wheelchair user:

We’d love to hear your thoughts about Kate’s talk, so please do share them as a comment below. Did you watch ‘Are you having a laugh? TV and Disability’ on BBC2. If so, what did you think? Is there anything that you’d like to have seen that wasn’t covered in the programme? If so, what?

Thank you very much Kate, for sharing a sneaky preview of the programme at “We are Enabled by Design”. It definitely whet our appetites for the full fat BBC2 broadcast! : )
