The researchers featured in the programme were Prof Brooks, neurologist at
Hammersmith Hospital, and two neuropharmacologists in Manchester whose
names escape me.

I saw the programme and was left feeling open-minded but sceptical-
couldn't help wondering if there was a prominent psychological component
to the dyskinesia. Although seeing the programme and seeing the patient are
not the same thing of course!
