Dear All,

I caught the last 2 minutes of a recent BBC documentary last week..abt a condition tht a child was pronounced dead only for her to wake up in a mortuary. I managed to get a glimpse of a dog tht had a similar condition tht was at the very end of the documentary.

Can anyone recall the title or even better the name of the medical condition?

The final episode appears to have been made over several years. It tracks the research of two medical teams into the cause of encephalitis lethargica, a strange neurological condition causing coma and catatonia, of which there was a pandemic between 1917 and 1928. The next reported batch of cases was in New York in the late 1960s. These are gracefully discussed by neurologist and author Dr Oliver Sacks, who first experimented treating these patients with L-dopa. The condition randomly reappeared at Charing Cross Hospital in 1993 with the case of Becky Howells. There is footage from her admission and a sense of helplessness as her consultant describes her initial despair when Becky first presented.
