The Mind Reader

This remarkable documentary is referenced in Chapter 10 of Into the Gray Zone. For two years, the BBC followed our work for "Panorama," which was first broadcast in 1953 and is the world's longest-running current-affairs documentary program. “The Mind Reader—Unlocking My Voice” went on to win several awards and the reception was universally positive. But at the heart of this incredible one-hour programme is something much more important than the publicity and the accolades. Through the experiences of these patients and their families we bear witness to the extraordinary resilience of the human spirit and are shown that even in the most desperate circumstances, there can be hope.
