If I recall correctly, one of the PBS series in the last few years
(either _The Brain_ or _The Mind_, I think it was the latter)
showed a child with this condition and discussed the implications
(summarized as "no fear"). I seem to recall that the family was
from the UK, but this was as much as 5 years ago.
