This program chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative. This seven-episode film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore's birth in 1858 to Eleanor's death in 1962. Over the course of those years, Theodore would become the 26th President of the United States and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd President of the United States. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the US within the wider world. The series encompasses the history the Roosevelts helped to shape: the creation of National Parks, the digging of the Panama Canal, the passage of innovative New Deal programs, the defeat of Hitler, and the post-war struggles for civil rights at home and human rights abroad. It is also an intimate human story about love, betrayal, family loyalty, personal courage, and the conquest of fear.

The brain is the most complex and mysterious organ in the body and the neurosurgeons of Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital like Jay Jayamohan deal with brains which go badly wrong. Each year the hospital's Neurosurgery Department looks after 1500 acutely ill patients, whose lives often hang in the balance for weeks or months. This episode, we meet the families of two patients whose lives are hanging in that balance. Tracey, a midwife and mother of two, lies comatose with massive head injuries suffered in a car crash. Her husband John escaped the crash relatively unscathed and now sits constantly by her bed, willing her to open her eyes. Across the ward lies Martin, struck down by a mysterious virus which has rendered him unconscious and unable to breathe for himself. Every day, his wife of ten years, Lisa, checks for signs Martin is coming back to life. For doctors and patients, the neurosurgery department is a physically and mentally gruelling place to be.

Added sugar is the West's number one dietary enemy. A dangerous molecule, sugar is responsible for at least four diseases. Ireland is the fourth highest consumer of sugar in the world, but very few know how much sugar they're actually consuming: a whopping 24 teaspoons a day, compared to the less-than-six teaspoon WHO recommendation. Dr Eva Orsmond investigates Ireland's sugar over-consumption and the shocking cost of a sugar habit: hospital admissions, long-term illness and premature death. As children today face a shorter life expectancy than their parents, this documentary tells the story that everyone needs to understand if people want to change the stark prediction. (Class. tba)
