Greenlit: Rachel Bruno: Me and My Dad, BBC3

Rachel Bruno: Me and My Dad w/t (1 x 60′) – Twenty-six-year-old Rachel Bruno lives at home with her brother and sister, and works as a waitress in a pizza restaurant. But Rachel is also the daughter of Frank Bruno, ex-heavyweight boxing champion of the world and much-loved national treasure. Since being sectioned for the first time 10 years ago, Frank is now one of Britain’s most famous sufferers of bipolar affective disorder – an illness that’s more commonly known as manic depression. In this personal, authored documentary Rachel will set out to discover the truth about her dad’s illness. Through talking to Frank about his condition and spending time with other sufferers, Rachel will explore this potentially devastating illness that affects around 1 in 100 people. And ultimately, she’ll discover whether she herself is at risk of developing it too.
