This series follows the struggle of morbidly obese patients and their families as they go through the weight loss program at Melbourne's Austin Health. The doctors at Austin Health are taking a different approach by treating obesity as a chronic genetic disease. The treatment regimen, which is a last resort for many patients who are at risk of early death due to their weight, uses a combination of diet, medication and bariatric surgery to transform bodies and lives. Challenging misconceptions about obesity as a lifestyle choice, this episode features patients such as former taxi driver Leanne, boxer Huss and the clinic's heaviest patient, 248kg Karen, as they battle their biology to reclaim their lives.

Susan Greenfield explains why she believes all aspects of human experience will eventually be explained in terms of the physical processes of the brain. The story of how we have gradually come to understand the astonishing complexity of the brain is revealed, from the earliest crude studies of the effects of brain injury, through to the latest insights from direct stimulation of specific areas in patients undergoing brain surgery whilst wide awake. Is it possible that our most spiritual feelings are merely the result of electrical activity in the temporal lobe?
