    Well done, they're doing a great job with all the interest Jen's achieved through Unrest.

    I thought they said 9:50 for Jen & Charles when showing the preview, but I wasn't paying close attention.

    Hopefully will be the last slot then, the one that sticks in people's memories a bit easier.

    I think it is. After mentioning Unrest, they were only talking about a cooking show that starts after this show.

    Sorry, I spoke prematurely! I can't have been listening properly. Now, surely! Any minute! They go off the air in ten minutes.

    (MERGED FROM MY THREAD, didn't see this, had to type and post live stream style hehe)

    BBC Breakfast

    They are doing a thing on Unrest

    Prime time coverage folks :)

    Wow, giving it a good look so far, showing the nasty side of the disease

    Charles Shepherd and Jen are ON THE SOFA!!!


    WOW JUST WOW

    Talking about POTS.

    Holy cow they are getting ALL the words in, NO ALTERNATIVE DENYERS are there to counter balance!!!

    This is unprecedented.

    Exercise makes it worse.

    Charles giving reasons why it was necessary to make the documentary.

    Difficult to diagnose.

    Mentioning ME AND CFS - It's not JUST about TIRED.

    Just saw it - both Jen and Charles did a great job. The clip they showed will have been a real eye-opener - just horrific - and Jen stuck the boot into GET. :)
