Kirsty Wark asks everything you always wanted to know about the menopause (but were too embarrassed to ask). In a quest for the truth, Kirsty cuts through the confusion and says the unsayable on this very personal odyssey. At the heart of the programme is frank and often funny testimony from famous and not so famous women, including Jennifer Saunders and Kaye Adams, while highly respected experts including the chair of the British Menopause Society give up-to-date advice.
Kirsty also investigates groundbreaking research at Edinburgh University – research which has the provocative potential to extend our fertility. Kirsty examines society’s reluctance to take the subject seriously and talk about it, and comes to the conclusion that if on average women are living up to 30 years after the menopause, it’s time to take care of ourselves.
When the writer Sir Terry Pratchett died in 2015, he was working on one last story – his own. But Terry’s Alzheimer’s meant he never got to finish it.
This poignant and humorous film starring Paul Kaye as Terry finally tells the story of this hugely popular author, creator of Discworld, whose books have sold over 85 million copies worldwide. Back in Black reveals Terry’s road to success was not always easy, from his troubled schooldays to being dismissed by literary critics, to his battle with Alzheimer’s. But knighted by the Queen, adored by millions of fans and with a legacy of 41 much-loved novels – Terry Pratchett is still having the last laugh.
