Getting Access to Spinraza

Getting Access to Spinraza

We are joined in studio this afternoon by Niall McHugh and Stephen Lannen – Niall is the dad of five month old Lara and Stephens daughter is Nelly who is 22 months. Both little girls have SMA1- which is spinal muscular atrophy type one – a fatal genetic muscle wasting disorder.

Both Niall and Stephen are here as they are campaigning to get access to a wonder drug called Spinraza which would save the life of their daughters.

Live Music - Gerry Leonard

Live Music - Gerry Leonard

We’re joined in studio this Thursday afternoon by musician and songwriter, Gerry Leonard. Gerry was musical director and friend of David Bowie - who died this week last year. On Monday, Gerry played Whelans as part of the Dublin Bowie Festival and he performs for Ray this afternoon.

 

Spy in The Wild

Spy in the Wild starts on BBC One tonight. It’s a fascinating insight into the animal world using remote controlled spy creatures with cameras in their eyes.

Thanks to this technology, as a viewer, you’re right there in the middle of the action. In the Serengeti with grieving giraffes or in Antarctica with the very funny Adelie penguins.

Ray is joined by John Downer, executive producer of the series this afternoon
