The Unbreakables: Life And Love On Disability Campus- Episode 1

July 30, 2015

BBC Three, 9pm:

Documentary series about life at National Star College in Gloucestershire, a further education college for people with physical disabilities, acquired brain injuries and associated learning difficulties.

The college years are ideal for making friends and finding romance. Roommates Xenon and Bradley Nash banter effortlessly about which of them is more handsome, but as they are leaving college soon their friendship will come to an end.

The high-octane college life includes all-campus events such sports day, summer balls and electing a new president. Bradley Butler is running for the top job – he sends an email to 200 students because he is desperate for his campaign to be taken seriously. But can he usurp the slick incumbent Nathan Mattick who is running for a second term?

Life at National Star is very different to life outside, as we find when we meet Beth in the Welsh Valleys who is preparing to leave home for the first time and start at National Star. She is desperate to meet new friends and quickly falls for Ed, a handsome young man who does not use a wheelchair. But she must come to terms with his learning disability, which is causing him to believe that he is a retired premiership footballer.
