Channel 4 are running a series called Embarrassing Illnesses which focuses on exactly that.
It’s a magazine style programme where doctors get to show exactly why they get paid what they do, having to deal with some pretty rank conditions that patients have avoided facing up to for some time.
Although not technically an illness, this week Singletrack magazine have highlighted that tonight’s programme covers male infertility in Mountain Bikers with a feature involving the Birmingham Wheels Bike Park and Club.
If you want to catch it, the programme is on at 8:30, Channel 4 (Thursday 31 May). Mark and I have so far managed to demonstrate immunity from the condition but with Dave, I guess we’ll never know…! (Only joking Dave).
There’s more information on the Channel 4 microsite ‘Embarrassing Illnesses’ but be warned – this evening’s programme also includes an item on assymetric breasts.
