Terry Pratchett talks about Alzheimers

Victoria Derbyshire | 10:17 AM, Thursday, 22 May 2008

When we spoke to him he said that as far as he knew, he'd never met anyone else with Alzheimers - so we sat him down with three other people who are affected by the condition and set the tape rolling. You can hear their conversation on Friday's programme - and we'll post it all here on the blog. But have a listen to this clip now...
