Inside Out - Warwick Roger

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2000

Inside Out explores the reality of living with a disability or chronic illness. The subject of this 2000 episode is writer Warwick Roger, best known for founding and editing glossy 'all things Auckland' mag, Metro. The 52-year-old's busy life was upended with his Parkinson's diagnosis and the steady loss of motor skills. Roger is candid about having to accept a 'slower' life and embracing simple joys like cafe trips with his daughters. Running buddy Bob Harvey talks about Roger's talents and Robyn Langwell (Roger's wife and boss) focusses on what her partner can still achieve. Warwick Roger passed away in August 2018.

The thing that worries me most is the word 'progressive'. If it progresses slowly and I can get through to 70 or 80 or mid-70s with not too much deterioration I won't be too concerned, but it seems to be speeding up ... more than it was in the previous two years...
