Born to Be Dif­fer­ent Chan­nel 4, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

For the past 15 years, this can­did and un­sen­ti­men­tal doc­u­men­tary has fol­lowed the lives of six chil­dren born with dis­abil­i­ties, and now, in this new two-part pro­gramme, the chil­dren ap­proach their 16th year. Wil­liam, has autism, learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties and a con­di­tion that causes tu­mours to grow any­where on his body. He also has a girl­friend, but their ro­mance may be short-lived un­less the NHS agrees to give him a £30,000-a-year drug to shrink a life-threat­en­ing tu­mour. Mean­while, Zoe has arthro­gry­po­sis, which means the move­ment in her limbs is se­verely af­fected.
