Michael Mosley – The Doctor Who Changed Britain

BBC One and iPlayer, Friday 8pm

Michael Mosley transformed the lives of millions of people. In this programme for BBC One and iPlayer we look back at an extraordinary broadcasting career which spanned almost 40 years.

Fronting series such as Trust Me I’m a Doctor and the hit podcast Just One Thing, Michael used his warm, often funny approach to deliver important, life-changing health messages.

He started behind the scenes, as an award-winning Science Journalist and Producer, before becoming a much-loved Presenter. His programmes have made a lasting impact on the nation’s health habits from intermittent fasting to the benefits of a cold shower.

Michael also shared his own struggles with audiences world-wide; as a chronic insomniac he made programmes about sleep and, ever curious, he would also go to extremes in the pursuit of science, even infecting himself with a tapeworm. Celebrating Michael’s career, this programme marks the enormous impact he made, touching the lives of so many.
