Does anyone remember the name of a TV documentary about people with different disorders that featured a woman who was kicked out of restaurants for swearing? It showed people who lived in a group home. One wore a crooked wig and had colored drawings of dancers on her walls. I think they showed some couples, too, that had different disorders. I saw this in the early 90s or late 80s. It may have been PBS. It was fascinating. I wish I would have wrote the title down.

Anyone who can list some TV documentaries about Tourette's Syndrome, please do so! THANKS!

there have been many documentary on PBS involving disorders. Do you remember if it was Nova, Frontline or what?

It's got to have been Frontline. That's the only series on PBS that I could see showing a documentary.

spike.com has a trailer for the movie Inside Tourette Syndrome (documentary) The movie itself I think is for sale both downloadable and on dvd. You'll have to google it, I can't post to advertisements.

It could have been POV as well . . . I think that's the name of the PBS independent film series.

Strangely, that does ring a bit of a bell; I might have seen that way back when. Maybe I'll have some time later to do some digging.


I love this film about Tourette's , but it was only shown on HBO,
