Open Door - M.E.

Television (Full Length) – 2008

Open Door is a unique form of community-based television that allows groups or individuals to apply to make a documentary programme about an issue that concerns them. This 'M.E'. episode looks into the lives of people suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Despite 'normal' outward appearances syndrome sufferers are affected by debilitating exhaustion and 'brain fog', and can face long-term bed-ridden isolation, job loss, and skepticism about the reality of their illness.
