My Brother And Me (1×60′) – In this inspiring documentary TV presenter Jeff Brazier explores his relationship with his brother Spencer, who has cerebral palsy.
Spencer is 24. He has never had a job or a girlfriend and spends his days watching TV and playing computer games. Jeff believes that despite his disability Spencer is capable of living a much more active and fulfilling life. Now Jeff is planning to put his theories to the test.
Jeff and Spencer spend some serious time together while their mum (Spencer’s full-time carer) gets away for a much-needed break, as Spencer moves in to Jeff’s house in Essex. What Spencer doesn’t know is the intense programme that Jeff’s got in store for him. Jeff wants to push his brother to make some real changes in his life – but will Jeff’s tough love prove too much for their already fragile relationship?
