Bristol to Tijuana

Written and presented by Liz Crow

30 minute radio programme, 4 June 1996

The fence is graffiti'd.


Bristol to Tijuana is a tale of crossing borders. Disillusioned with the orthodox response in Britain to her illness, Liz Crow travels to a clinic in Mexico for a programme of treatment.

Every day for five weeks, Liz journeys from California to the town of Tijuana. But the borders go beyond geography in this account of cultural contrasts, medical culture shock and the complications and contradictions of living long term with illness.
