A look at six people as they embark on this long journey to become the person they've always wanted to be. Looking at the latest medical advances, this program explores how our brains, hormones and sex organs define our understanding of gender and sex. Are the binary options of female and male a biological fact or a psychological construction? Should children who identify as trans try to prevent puberty, giving them longer to come to terms with their gender? Rather than being simply male or female, are we all somewhere between the two? Alternative title: 1095: A Transgender Story.

What's really going on inside your stomach? In this program, Dr Michael Mosley offers up his own guts to find out. Using the latest in medical imagery and a tiny state of the art camera that he swallows at the start of the film, Michael takes viewers on a remarkable journey through his own internal system. At each stage he talks to medical experts and explains the amazing functions that happen without our conscious effort - and reveals a complexity and intelligence in the gut that science is only just beginning to uncover.

2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the legalisation of homosexuality in the UK (the 1967 Sexual Offences Act was given royal assent on July 27 of that year) - a great leap forward for tolerance and equality. But while the country basks in self-congratulation, one gay man - Rupert Everett - wants to ask some uncomfortable questions about what was lost, as well as gained, when gay men and women could finally step out from the closet.

Twenty years after he helped put Jon Buice in a Texas prison, Ray Hill is fighting to free him. Filmed over the course of eight years, this film traces the friendship between a prominent gay rights activist and a convicted 'gay bash' murderer, set against the backdrop of gay rights, victims' rights, and prisoners' rights and the harsh Texas justice system. This film casts a fascinating spotlight on how the flaws of the system - and the court of public opinion - affect justice.

Join us on an extraordinary journey, that will explore the technological and scientific struggle for the survival of Venice, a survival that has been in doubt from its very construction. The sea level in Venice has increased drastically in the last century or so, threatening the very existence of the city. Global warming and the harmful effects of tourism have amplified the phenomenon of acqua alta (sudden rise in sea level), rendering the traditional responses of inhabitants obsolete. It is urgent to act today. Projects conceived in laboratories across the globe are joining forces to save the city. These include RAMSES, a 3D modelisation of the lagoon produced using lasers, which analyses rises in water level; and MOSE, a series of movable dams costing over 4 billion euros, intended to block the sea in case of acqua alta.

Giant media conglomerates are increasingly reluctant to investigate or criticise government policies. With state surveillance never more extreme, independent voices are crucially important. All Governments Lie is a theatrical documentary created by a team of Emmy Award-winning filmmakers who subscribed to IF Stone's newsletter in their teens. IF Stone's Weekly inspired them then, and compels them now to tell the story of a new wave of independent, investigative, adversarial journalists following in Stone's footsteps.
