One of the greatest problems facing doctors in their efforts to fight cancer is that the word itself is synonymous with death and suffering. The depressing side of this disease gets plenty of publicity. We all know someone who has died of cancer.
Yet it is estimated that 30,000 people are cured of cancer every year in this country. Many of them are unaware that they have suffered from an attack of it because they have never been told. Others, because of the conspiracy of silence, never talk of it. Tonight on Man Alive five ex-cancer patients who have been successfully treated, talk about their experiences. No man faces cancer unmoved, but all the contributors in tonight's programme look forward to their futures with confidence and hope.

In tonight's film four of the islanders, the resident nurse, and the missionary's daughter describe life on the island in those last years and the events which led up to the evacuation.
