Trevor Phillips looks to Cast Offs as a possible solution for 'the disabled' / 7 December 2009
Not having had access to a UK television, I've not been able to see the new crip series Cast Offs on Channel Four. However, I have seen most of the reviews and other material that's been available on t'internet so I've had a pretty good idea of the story line, etc.
I'm also fortunate in knowing several of the disabled actors who are appearing in the series so, what with Facebook and our other networking resources, I'm slowly gathering enough material for a commemorative cartoon about this unique event. Unique in as much that this is the first time a mainstream television company has produced a programme about Disabled people, starring REAL Disabled actors, farts and all!
So, 'cause I'm not quite ready for the cartoon (phew, I hear Vicky and Mat say!) I got to wondering who else might be inspired by the programme ...
