Crossing Continents - Spain's Forgotten Thalidomiders


Geoff Adams-Spink visits Spain to talk to Thalidomide survivors fighting for compensation. He meets Pepe Riquelme, who has conducted a solo campaign for recognition for more than 20 years. At the launch of a film based on Pepe's life, he tries to understand why the plight of Spanish Thalidomide children is only now coming to light after half a century.
