The Day I Got My Sight Back (BBC 1)
Since 2002, Ian Tibbetts, a forty-two year old former forklift truck driver from Telford, has been slowly going blind. He has never seen the faces of his twin four-year old boys. Despite numerous treatments to save his eyesight, nothing has worked.
Over several months, Walker George Films follows Ian as he undergoes a series of extraordinary and complex operations in a last attempt to restore his sight - with the help of one of his teeth.
Only one hospital in the UK offers this type of surgery. The success rate is high, but it's not guaranteed. Will Ian ever see his wife again - and will he finally see his sons for the first time in his life?
