British Crip Camp on it’s Way

Rather cooly, today I got wind of a drama to be shown on BBC2 over christmas which will tell the story of how disabled people campaigned for and won their rights in the UK, culminating in the passing of the Disability Discrimination Act. As described here, the film will be “based on the remarkable true story of the people behind an irrepressible campaign of direct action that lead to significant steps forward in the battle for disabled civil rights in Britain”. I better not say how I came to learn about it, other than that it involved coffee, but I certainly think this hour long drama, whose working title is ‘Independence Day? How Disabled Rights Were Won’, is something to look out for.
