Every day in Australia over 40,000 patients are in hospital. While medicine tends their bodies, hospital chaplains tend their souls. Over eight episodes we follow our chaplains' journeys alongside the patients and their families at three major hospitals. They are Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Jewish and Buddhist. Regardless of their faith, they all meet the same challenges - to help make sense of the mystery of illness, pain, suffering and despair. This series offers a unique bedside view of the daily life and death drama of hospital life through our chaplains' eyes.

Anzac Day is a time to commemorate the men and women who fought and died; the battles won and lost. But there's another story rarely told, about the women who waited at home, and were left bereft and alone. Around 100, 000 Australian women are classified as 'war widows'. Many lost their husbands in wartime; others in war related circumstances afterwards.
