Down's syndrome is a common condition caused by the presence of an extra chromosome. It is named after John Langdon Down, the British asylum medical superintendent who described the syndrome in a series of lectures in 1866. In 1959, the disorder was identified as a chromosome 21 trisomy by the French paediatrician and geneticist Jérôme Lejeune. But children and adults born with this chromosomal difference have an important collective history beyond the history of medical science.

Professor David Wright explains the history of Downs, within healthcare and beyond.
