About Wobbly TV

Wobbly TV is Ataxia UK's monthly series of ten short videos for people affected by ataxia. We aim to give people a better understanding of ataxia, and to help them discover how to meet some of the challenges it poses. The project was made possible with generous support from The James Tudor Foundation.


Each episode of Wobbly TV includes subtitles. If they do not display automatically, click the 'Captions' icon at the bottom right of the YouTube video player, or find out how you can change your default settings.
