Appearing on The One Show

Scope has been helping a production company put a programme together for The One Show.  It looks at the 30th anniversary of the Oscar winning film, My Left Foot (if you’ve not seen it, it’s a true account of the Irish painter and writer, Christy Moore, who had cerebral palsy) Daniel Day Lewis played Christy and won an Oscar.
Next Tuesday 16 July, the production team are hosting a special screening of this film which will be hosted by Lee Ridley/Lost Voice Guy. They would like to invite 5-10 people with cerebral palsy to watch the film and comment afterwards about their impression of attitudes then and today, 30 years on. 
Scope is also contributing, in the wider picture talking about attitudes and representation and we've been asked to invite our London-based supporters who have CP (and of course carers) to come along to an as of yet unannounced venue for the event and be available afterwards for interviews which will be edited and aired when the live programme is broadcast (date TBC!)


If you're interested, we'd love to hear from you below.

    We have a rough time for next Tuesday’s screening of My Left Foot. It will be at 1pm at the BFI (British Film Institute) which is located at Belvedere Road, South Bank, London SE1 8XT. Please note the time could change slightly but this is a good time to aim for.

    We're waiting on confirmation of accessibility, but we know the room they’re screening My Left Foot in has wide aisles / wheelchair access, but will confirm with other details.

    Drinks will be provided and the company will also provide accessible cabs to / from the venue to a central/inner London point but not beyond.

    Sadly we live in Yorkshire so wouldn’t be able to attend but will definitely watch despite it clashing with Emmerdale. It would be interesting to see if attitudes are different depending on where you live in the country. My son is incredibly bright but as his speech is affected by his CP I can see that people make assumptions as to his intelligence. It really doesn’t seem to bother him, I sometimes think he sees it as a challenge to change their opinions by throwing in a few big words to conversations but it does bug me.
