Metamorphosis seems like the ultimate evolutionary magic trick, the amazing transformation of one creature into a totally different being: one life, two bodies. From Ovid and Kafka to X-Men, tales of metamorphosis richly permeate human culture. The myth of transformation is so common that it seems almost preprogrammed into our imagination. But is the scientific fact of metamorphosis just as strange as fiction or… even stranger? David Malone explores the science behind metamorphosis. How does it happen and why? And might it even, in some way, happen to us?

Clemency Burton-Hill reveals the untold story of the black British swing musicians of the 1930s, whose meteoric rise to fame on London's high society dance floors was cut short by unexpected tragedy at the height of the Blitz.

Amal Fashanu, daughter of John and niece to Justin, explores the culture of football to find out whether it is cultivating a worrying attitude towards women and sex. How do footballers juggle their intense professional and personal lives? Young footballers can be earning £30,000 a week by the age of 18 and retire by 30. In this short window, what is the impact on the relationships of these young men? Amal uses her contact book to meet girls keen to meet and sleep with footballers, players and managers to explore if this culture of permissive sex and predatory behaviour has become the norm. Using the backdrop of the ongoing Ched Evans situation, she meets the insiders in the secret world of footballers' sex lives who reveal how inflated egos, pressure, money, excessive levels of female attention and a culture of casual sex and macho competition totally out of touch with the outside world are spawning a disregard for women and sometimes the law.
