Girls Who Don't Age

A mystery surrounds little girls who seem to be forever young. Trapped in the bodies of helpless babies, they've never learned to crawl, talk, or sit up.

Years roll by, but they still have soft, plump skin like newborn babies, and make the same cooing and gurgling noises.

Frozen in time and destined to live their lives as toddlers, what is affecting these girls, how are they cheating time, and could they help us unlock the secrets of the ageing process?

This documentary follows the story of three girls who have stopped ageing, and the work of the doctor investigating their condition to give their families a diagnosis that no other medical professional has been able to provide.
 

The Joy of Winning

Channel: Da Vinci Learning (StarSat 308)
TX Time: 22h00
Genre: Documentary, Science

The Joy of Winning

Following in the footsteps of the maths films The Joy of Stats and The Joy of Data, this gleefully nerdy adventure sees mathematician Dr Hannah Fry unlock the essential strategies you'll need to get what you want - to win - more of the time.

From how to bag a bargain dinner to how best to stop the kids arguing on a long car journey, maths can give you a winning strategy.

And the same rules apply to the world's biggest problems - whether it's avoiding nuclear annihilation or tackling climate change.

Deploying 'The Joys Of...' films' trademark mix of playful animation alongside both oddball demos and contributions from the world's biggest brains, Fry shows how this field of maths - known as game theory - is the essential key to help you get your way.

She reveals ways to analyse any situation, and methods of calculating the consequences of getting what you want.

Expect tips on taking advantage of what your opponents do, but also pleasing proof that cooperation might get you further than conflict.

Along the way the film reveals, amongst other things, what links the rapper Ludacris, a Kentucky sheriff, a Nobel Prize winner and doping in professional cycling.

And there's an irresistible chance to revisit the most excruciatingly painful and the most genius scenes ever seen on a TV game show, as Hannah unpacks the maths behind the legendary show Golden Balls and hails Nick Corrigan, the contestant whose cunning gameplay managed to break the supposedly intractable 'Prisoner's Dilemma'.

Other contributors to The Joy of Winning include European number one professional female poker player Liv Boeree, Scottish ex-pro cyclist and anti-doping campaigner (banned for two years in 2004 for doping) David Millar, Israeli game theory expert Dr Haim Shapira - who shows why it is sometimes rational to be irrational - and top evolutionary game theorist Professor Karl Sigmund from the University of Vienna.

The Royal Babies of Windsor

Tells the extraordinary tales of Royal births, motherhood and infancy, and ask what new Princess Meghan might reasonably expect from this next stage of her life.

With insight, expertise and insider anecdotes, this one-off special spans four generations of royal births.

Kate Middleton's pregnancies captured the public's attention but the arrival of Meghan Markle's baby was set to take interest to stratospheric levels.

With contributions from Royal raconteurs including commentators, eminent historians and members of the aristocracy, along with showcasing the finest archive footage – ranging from grand state celebrations to intimate home movies – the film explores 100 years of bringing up baby.

In 1948 the Queen's pregnancy was not formally announced whereas 70 years later the Royal pregnancy is announced through social media.

This is the story of raising Royalty from pregnancy to parenthood and how this has evolved across the generations.
