TV | Fergal Keane: Living with PTSD

BBC Special Correspondent, Fergal Keane has covered conflict and brutality for more than 30 years.

From Kigali to Baghdad to Belfast, he was always at the heart of the story and became a trusted BBC face; known for reporting with humanity and extraordinary empathy. But off screen, Fergal struggled to keep another story from overwhelming him. He was suffering from an acute form of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

In 2020, Fergal went public with his diagnosis of PTSD.

In this personal film, Fergal lays bare its impact on himself, and others like him.

Fergal explores how Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder led him to consider withdrawing from conflict reporting, in a personal new film for Horizon. Fergal also investigates the latest scientific thinking behind PTSD and its treatment.
