My New Brain

9:00pm Wednesday, August 25 on C4

Each year in Britain, 135,000 people end up in hospital with a traumatic brain injury. The effects can be profound and life-changing for the people affected, as well as their families and friends. This powerful and moving documentary follows 20-year-old Simon Hales on a remarkable journey through rehab, as he and his family come to terms with the challenges of life after brain injury. As well as remembering nothing of the accident, or the weeks and months before, Simon needs constant attention; his mood swings violently and his mum, Jane, says it’s like having a toddler all over again.
