Big Love is a Music programme.


Big Love

Brothers James Lusted, 29, and Phil, 32, both have a rare form of dwarfism. They have faced medical and physical challenges in their lives but, most of all, they always believed they would struggle to find love. They were wrong. This documentary, part of BBC One's Our Lives strand of programmes, is an intimate and emotional insight into their lives. James, three feet seven inches tall, is getting ready to marry his average-height fiancee Chloe. He still cannot believe it is happening. Older brother Phil is three feet tall and has been married once before. It didn't work out, but his past experience has not put him off. He met average-height Kathleen from Seattle online, and the couple are also now engaged to be married. James and Phil's parents are average height. They had no idea that they were both carriers of the dwarfism gene until Phil was born and admit that the pressure of bringing up Phil and James proved such a challenge at times that the marriage almost hit crisis point.
