The Kennedy who changed the world tells the story of how one woman from America’s most famous family changed the world for the most disadvantaged and discriminated people on the planet – through sport.

And despite her efforts it reveals what life is like today for sporting youngsters with an intellectual disability.

This programme was made on a small budget but has had a huge impact around the world.

It revealed the emotional story of how those with intellectual disabilities found a place through sport and how a strong woman in a man’s world fought for acceptance and understanding of people with autism, Down’s Syndrome and other learning difficulties.

It was shown on BBC iPlayer, BBC2, BBC News Channel and BBC World as well as coverage on BBC Breakfast and reports in national press in the UK and abroad.

The entire programme was conceived, produced, written, filmed and edited by Stuart Pollitt and Phill Smith.

Stuart discovered key interviewees who had never spoken before as well as persuading famous celebrities and politicians to be interviewed, including members of the Kennedy family, former President Bill Clinton and Nicole Scherzinger.
He tracked down athletes’ stories in the UK, Ireland, the USA and Tanzania to paint a picture of how 50 years of Special Olympics has changed lives. This involved persuading families to talk about difficult and uncomfortable issues, unveiling stories of bravery and dedication.

Phill used his visual talents to create arresting opening images and made skilful use of unseen archive material to fully explain the horror of life for those with intellectual disabilities just a few decades ago.

The programme is now being used to educate viewers around the world with charities showing it to employees and dignitaries in developing countries to highlight the issue of how those with intellectual disabilities are treated.

The Times:
“An unexpectedly inspirational programme.”

The Guardian:
“A rare and valuable story of someone who used her power, influence, money and sorrows for good rather than ill.”

The Daily Mail:
Five stars - “For sheer emotion The Kennedy who Changed the World took the gold medal.”
