Doctors are often forced to make moral judgments when they treat us. In a series of six stories based on true cases, Ian Kennedy , Reader in Law at King's College London, examines the principles that guide them.
4: McGee
The McGees are good Catholics. But one night, Con McGee is unfaithful, and catches 'a little infection'. He wants the doctor to treat his wife without telling her why-the truth could break the marriage and cause the children needless suffering. What should the doctor do? Dr Anthony Inwald , a London gp, discusses his response to McGee's problem with Dr Duncan Catterall , a venereologist at the Middlesex Hospital, and Fr Bredan Callaghan , a Jesuit marriage counsellor

Hair
By their hair shall ye know them....
Tonight Arena takes you on a tour of contemporary British heads, from the exotic to the mundane, from hot wax to Brylcreem. Blue rinse, quiff, mohican, short back and sides, dreadlocks or just shaved off altogether. By your choice of hairstyle you tell the world about yourself. You can blend in with the crowd or stand out from it. For some it is a fundamental part of their religious beliefs, for others pure indulgence.
What are the prospects for a bank clerk with a hennaed 'trojan '? How does a white man become a Rasta? Does the back of your neck still prickle at the thought of the barber's clippers? This Arena investigation will make your hair stand on end.
