A major factual series for BBC2 that takes the temperature of contemporary adult relationships with 10 films giving an insightful slice of today’s Adult Lives.
Adult Lives explores the subject of sex through a series of personal narratives in which real people talk about the role that sex plays in their lives. Each contributor adds their own different perspective, drawing out the theme that sex has different meanings for everyone – and how it’s much more about what’s in the mind than what’s happening to the body. The programmes aim to provoke debate and enlightenment rather than sensation.

Permission to Love
Two couples with one thing on their mind – to have a loving sexual relationship and live together. The only thing that stands in their way is the fact that they have learning disabilities. This is an honest portrait which shows how the differing attitudes of people around them turns behaving like ordinary couples into an uphill struggle.
“there’s a particular poignancy to the stories of two mentally handicapped couples”
- Lewis Jones, The Sunday Telegraph.
Return To Tuscany
Documentary series following London restaurateurs Giancarlo and Katie Caldesi as they strive to make a success of a cookery school business in Tuscany.
London restaurateurs Giancarlo & Katie Caldesi are about to try their hand at opening a cookery school in beautiful Tuscany. Return to Tuscany is the series which documents their pursuit of this lifelong dream as they face up to the huge competition and a host of dramatic challenges.
As a base for the school, they’ve rented a hotel they’ve only ever seen from the outside. They’ll be entirely dependent on the staff, but they’ve never even met them. To cap it all, just days before they leave England under huge financial pressure, they’re racing against the clock to build a brand new cookery school in London.
Giancarlo is a passionate, flamboyant and proud native of Tuscany, returning to discover his childhood past. Katie is his feisty English rose from Eastbourne. Together they are a refreshingly honest and talented couple who frequently complicate their lives by aiming higher than those around them. They decide to get married in Italy too, and every exciting development of the planning and magnificent ceremony is presented in dramatic detail.

Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer.’ We’re the only charity dedicated to making this happen.We bring young people together so they can be treated together, by teenage cancer experts, in the best place for them.We educate young people about cancer and work with health professionals to develop their knowledge so we can improve the speed and quality of diagnosis.And by funding research and working with our partners in the NHS, government and organisations both nationally and internationally, we strive to improve survival rates.
We lead the world in the care of young people with cancer. Together with these young people, their families and the passion of our supporters, we’re challenging the NHS and transforming lives.
2014 sees the 10th anniversary of the foundation of TYAC. This is a time to celebrate what has been achieved not only by TYAC as an organisation, but within the field of TYA cancer care over this time. We continue to be an integral part of an advancing field where the UK remains the world leader. This would not be possible without the continued support of our funders. TYAC continues to benefit from very generous support and funding from CLIC Sargent and Teenage Cancer Trust.
TYAC aims to be recognised as the unified voice of all multi-disciplinary professionals working with teenagers and young adults with cancer in the UK. We support our diverse professional membership by providing information, learning and networking opportunities.
Our vision is a future where all professionals working with teenagers and young adults with cancer are united as members of TYAC. Together, through peer support, networking, learning opportunities and the sharing of information and best practice, we can improve the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer.
CCLG members represent all disciplines involved in the care of children with cancer and are based in, or linked to, a network of principal treatment centres across the UK and Ireland. It is in these centres that the majority of children with cancer are treated.
The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust is a national organisation that gives young people between the ages of 8-24 who are in recovery from cancer the opportunity to take part in the new and fantastic experience of sailing. The majority of our young people who sail for the first time have finished treatment and are in the very difficult process of trying to put their lives back together. These young people are recruited by our contact (usually a nurse or Clic Sargent social worker) at the hospital or group we work with, as they are more involved with the young people and are more aware of who would benefit the most from the trip. Those aged 8-17 can continue to sail with the Trust every year up until their 18th birthday, and we try and invite those aged 18-24 to return to sail at least once. After this, many will continue sailing with the Trust as Volunteers by going through our Graduate Volunteer programme.
