In the future stem cell transplants could offer hope to people with Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and those who have suffered strokes. But the cells are harvested from embryos and foetuses - raising ethical issues that have led to researchers having their funding cut. With the science largely unproven, the desperately ill seek help in countries with hazy legislation. This World follows a group of patients to Ukraine to see if transplanted foetal stem cell injections can already help save or improve lives. Producer Tom Giles ; Executive producer Karen O'Connor

COMEDY DRAMA Sensitive Skin
10.00pm BBC2 Al and Davina's minimalist flat reflects the clean lines of their drama. This is pared-down, low-key television: it may take a while to get on their wavelength, but it's worth it when you do.
Davina, the chic ex-model, is again lost in pensive melancholy, and it's a mood that Joanna Lumley plays to perfection. When she bumps into an old schoolfriend, the encounter only reminds her of what she hasn't achieved in life. Al (Denis Lawson) also runs into an old flame, a media harridan played with lethal gusto by Frances de la Tour. DB
THE INSIDE STORY Usually actors are judged on how they deliver lines. But when Hugo Blick, the writer of Sensitive Skin (10.00pm BBC2), first worked with Joanna Lumley on BBC2's series of monologues Up in Town (shown in 2002), it wasn't her voice that dazzled him. "I was very taken with her sense of stillness," says Blick. "One of the things she used to do when I was sitting having coffee with her, usually discussing anything but the script, was go into complete silence. Maybe that's because she hoped I would leave! But also I kind of think that's a quality to her character, that she can just become very still it's as if she can go on standby."
