An interesting piece in the Media Guardian this morning about Ash Atalla, a BBC producer who uses a wheelchair.

Atalla makes clear that he doesn't want to be viewed as a "disabled TV producer" -- but rather just a producer:
"I've never had a bee in my bonnet about the way disabled people are portrayed," he says. "I'm probably a massive disappointment to the disabled community on that front - I didn't come into television to change that, I just thought it was a great career."
