"See the full episode at http://video.pbs.org/video/1082086931 Michael J. Fox talks with FRONTLINE producer Dave Iverson about living with Parkinson's disease, a diagnosis Iverson also shares with his older brother and departed father. "My Father, My Brother, and Me" aired Tues, Feb 3 at 9 pm on PBS (check local listings). http://www.pbs.org/frontline/parkinsons In 2004, journalist Dave Iverson received the same news that had been delivered to his father and older brother years earlier: He had Parkinson's disease, a degenerative neurological disorder that affects about one million Americans. In a FRONTLINE and ITVS joint production, Iverson explores the scientific, ethical and political debate that surrounds Parkinson's --a disease at the center of the ongoing controversy over embryonic stem cell research. Iverson talks to scientists on the cutting edge of new cures and therapies for Parkinson’s as well as a number of other major neurological conditions. And he has intimate conversations with fellow Parkinson's sufferers like actor Michael J. Fox and writer Michael Kinsley."
