When the woman he loved was diagnosed with a metastatic cancer,
science-writer George Johnson embarked on a journey to learn
everything he could about the disease and the people who dedicate
their lives to understanding and combating it. What he discovered
is that a revolution is now under way - an explosion of new ideas
about what cancer really is and where it comes from. He combs
through the realms of epidemiology, clinical trials, laboratory
experiments and scientific hypotheses, to reveal what we know and
don't know about cancer, showing why a cure remains such a slippery
concept. His luminous accounts describe tumors that evolve like
alien creatures inside the body, paleo-oncologists who uncover
petrified tumors clinging to the skeletons of dinosaurs and ancient
human ancestors, and the surprising reversals in science's
comprehension of the causes of cancer, with the foods we eat and
environmental toxins playing a lesser role. Perhaps most
fascinating of all is how cancer borrows natural processes involved
in the healing of a wound or the unfolding of a human embryo and
turns them against the body. Throughout his pursuit, Johnson
illuminates the human experience with elegiac grace, bearing
witness to the punishing gauntlet of consultations, surgeries,
targeted therapies and other treatments. Provocative and
intellectually vibrant, The Cancer Chronicles will challenge
everything you thought you knew about the disease - and provide
hope for tomorrow and the future.
Documentary about the World War II bomber planes and their pilots. The Lancaster bombers were an integral part of the RAF and played a major role in numerous key campaigns and missions including the Dam Busters and Tirpitz. Archive footage and accounts from veteran pilots, test pilots and the pilot of the last Lancaster bomber - still flown today as part of the Battle of Britain Memorial flight - give an insight into what it was like to fly in combat in these formidable planes.
