The Woman Who Changed Disability Laws: Barbara Lisicki On New Drama Adaptation

She inspired a heroic revolution. In the 90s, Barbara Lisicki and her then partner Alan Holdsworth together organised brave, co-ordinated protests that pushed the campaign for disabled rights into the spotlight. They chained themselves to buses and they blocked streets. Wheelchair users were lifted from their chairs by police and laid down in the roads to try to deter them. And now, a new BBC drama will tell the story. Barbara is in the studio to talk about the behind the scenes events that inspired the show.
