Thanks dug, really good, pretty hard to watch at times when talking about his Alzheimer's, but an excellent programme.
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

The pain in Rob's face when he's talking about the disease and how it's gradually affecting Terry is so sad to see.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I sent this link to my daughter. Her reply was "Do I have to watch it? I think it may upset me :cry: " I totally understand how she feels, I kinda didn't want to watch it either, but I'm glad I did. I laughed and I cried, and realized how desperately sad I'm going to be when he's no longer with us. I don't know Sir Terry, never met him, and he's still one of my best friends.
