As the Second World War began, British parents fearful of an attack from German bombers were encouraged to send their children to the relative safety of the countryside. In September 1939, more than one and a half million children were labelled like luggage, separated from their parents and evacuated during the biggest movement of people the country had ever seen. This compelling documentary tells the story of what happened when the children returned to their families, and how they adjusted to life back at home and at school.

Is our fear of radioactivity based on scientific reality? From Hiroshima to Chernobyl, scientists have been studying the impact of human exposure to radiation for over 60 years and have always believed that any level of radiation is bad for you. But astonishing new evidence contradicts many common assumptions about the risks of radiation exposure. Leading scientists are now questioning whether or not radiation causes cancer, and are even finding evidence to suggest that exposure to radiation can have beneficial health effects.
