The Bridge at Midnight Trembles [electronic resource]: Parkinson's Disease and Deep Brain Stimulation

Diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1990, actor Richard Moir endured thirteen years of shakes, freezes, and depression as his career faded, his disease worsened, and various treatments achieved nothing. This program follows Moir as he prepares to undergo the procedure known as deep brain stimulation; it also documents his uncertain recovery period. Presenting photos and movie clips depicting the patient's personal experiences-including his first symptoms of Parkinson's-the film accompanies Moir as the day of his operation approaches, as he enters the hospital and readies for surgery, and afterwards as scars heal, hair grows back, and a degree of bodily control returns.

Baby in a Frame [electronic resource]

Six-month-old William Knight was born with a clubfoot, a deformity that could delay his development and cause him to walk with a limp for the rest of his life. However, his parents are determined to help him overcome this disability and have volunteered him for a pioneering treatment no surgeon had ever used on such a young child. During a 90-minute operation shown in part in this program, wires are pushed through William's leg and foot to hold them rigidly in a metal frame. The frame is gradually adjusted to pull William's foot back into position. Six weeks later it is removed, and William is able to take his first steps.
