UK TV - Bond girl Maryam d'Abo's film about brain haemorrhages on BBC4
Programme: 'Rupture: Living With My Broken Brain'
Channel: BBC 4 (UK)
Date: Thursday 12th July 2012
In 2007 former Bond girl Maryam d'Abo suffered a brain haemorrhage. The experience inspired her to make a film about survivors of brain injuries, giving a sense of hope to those isolated by the disease.
As she guides us through her personal journey of recovery, Maryam talks to others who have suffered brain injury, including Robert McCrum, former literary editor of The Observer; Pat Martino, jazz guitarist and music producer Quincy Jones.
Along with testimony of eminent neurosurgeons, neurologists, and neuro-psychologists, these first-hand stories celebrate human life force and the will to survive. Directed by Maryamâs husband Hugh Hudson, who witnessed her illness, this film offers a unique insight into the fragility of the extraordinary human brain.
