Product Description:

In this touching, informative look at genetic disease, journalist Dave Iverson tells the story of his struggle with Parkinson's, a degenerative ailment that struck both his father and brother before him. Iverson explores the science and politics of Parkinson's and illnesses like it, and discusses the issue with fellow advocates Michael J. Fox and Michael Kinsley.

Description by PBS Video:

In My Father, My Brother, and Me, a FRONTLINE co-production with ITVS, airing Feb. 3, 2009, at 9 P.M. ET on PBS (check local listings), Iverson sets off on a personal journey to understand the disease that has taken such a toll on his family. Along the way, he meets some remarkable people--a leading Parkinson's researcher whose encounter with "frozen" heroin addicts led to a major breakthrough; a Parkinson's sufferer given a new lease on life by an experimental brain surgery; and a geneticist who helped identify some of the gene mutations responsible for Parkinson's and who is now working on drugs to fix them.
