Early Evening

20% of the UK population have a disability, but you would have no idea that was true from watching television.

Representation of disabled people on and off screen has risen in recent years, but it is still woefully short of reflecting the reality of Britain today.

A lively panel of disabled talent will debate why this is, how good or not portrayal is and what more can be done.

Speakers: 
Adam Hills, presenter of The Last Leg
Rosie Jones, researcher and comedian
Shannon Murray, actress, writer and broadcaster
Deborah Williams, CEO, Creative Diversity Network
