To mark 25 years since the passing of the Disability Discrimination Act, which made discrimination against disabled people unlawful, BBC Four has launched a series sharing stories about disability.
‘The CripTales’ showcases a series of compelling and unexpected stories from disabled people. Each short episode brings to life the impact that having a disability can have on a person’s life, from the positives to the prejudices.
Just a few of the stories include an actor called Mat who takes a look back at the discriminations he faced in his auditions, a lady called meg who forged an unexpected friendship and a children’s writer who tells a tale of how she came to fall in love with her next door neighbour.
These short videos will be available on BBC iPlayer for a year.
