Former rugby player Mark Jones and Sir Michael Palin talk about their experiences of stammering.

Around one and a half million adults in the UK have a stammer. For some – it is obvious when they speak. For many others, it’s something they manage to hide – sometimes from even those closest to them.

Former Welsh international Mark Jones and actor Sir Michael Palin, whose father had a stammer, talk about the speech disorder.

I can’t say my name – Stammering in the Spotlight – is on BBC IPlayer.

You can get more information and help about stammering from the charity Stamma.
