Widows of War
For thousands of families in Britain, Remembrance
Sunday is not enough. This film features four women who lost their husbands during very different conflicts but they share the same feelings of futility and isolation at the loss of their loved ones. Left to fend for themselves on meagre pensions, many war widows have been fighting their own very personal battles to this day. Suggested by a letter from a war widow, this moving film is a tribute to their courage.

A five-part series on the pioneers of modern surgery Nerves of Steel
Imagine the scene. 1830 - a smoke-filled room, crowded with spectators. Their eyes are fixed on a man, restrained on a wooden table, with a leg ravaged by gangrene. The surgeon enters. Without anaesthetics, without blood transfusion and with no knowledge of infection, he will amputate the leg in 30 seconds.
Today surgeons can operate safely on the brain and the heart, on the elderly and on babies only a few hours old. The story of this remarkable transformation begins with a historic operation on a boy, Gilbert Abbott. What made his operation special was that, unlike all patients before him, he felt no pain.
