Filmed as a QED documentary by the BBC, John's Not Mad made a huge impact on the nation and brought the relatively unknown condition of Tourette Syndrome into the public domain. The documentary follows John Davidson, a 15 year old schoolboy from Galashiels who suffers from the most severe form of this complex neurological disorder. This fascinating and inspiring film explores the way in which John, his family and the local community deal with his extreme condition.

This DVD also contains footage from the 2002 follow-up BBC documentary 'The Boy Can't Help It' featuring John, now aged 31, as he talks about how much impact the original documentary has had on his life.

John's charity, 'Tourette Scotland', will be receiving a donation from every copy sold to continue helping and advising families of Tourette sufferers.
  • Footage from the 2002 follow up BBC documentary 'The Boy Can't Help It'
  • Audio commentary by John Davidson
  • Notes on the Tourette Scotland charity

Like a lot of people, i bought this as i had many funny memories from the late 80's of this documentaries. However, i was very upset when watching it to see how john was treated in his youth. The man is a true insperation. (Still funny as flip though)

 Fantastic-it's finally on DVD

This documentary is fantastic. This was first aired on BBC in 1989 and has been unavailable since. It is a really informative piece on tourettes with some really great scenes. John is a star! You really feel for this guy and his family.
