Adoption is now high on the political agenda as the best option for the 65,000 children in care. But, with less than 5% actually placed for adoption, children must wait an average two years and seven months for a permanent family. Why does it take so long? What is the human cost?

You’ve got all these people watching you and you’re wearing this shirt that singles you out. You’re on the spot.” Lacy, 14, is an orphan, and a better description of her situation would be hard to imagine.

The process begins with the most difficult decision of all: the decision to remove a child from its birth family. This episode follows the social workers whose job it is to take children away from their parents and recommend whether they should ever return; and parents who are desperately fighting to keep their children. Child protection levels in Britain are at a record high. On average, one child is taken into care in Britain every 20 minutes and over 15,000 children were waiting to be adopted last year alone, double that of five years ago. With unparalleled access to the entire adoption process, this three part documentary series follows social workers, foster carers, birth parents and adopters as heart-wrenchingly difficult decisions are made about the future of some of Britain’s most vulnerable children.

A Cutting Edge documentary that looks at the impact, on both children and parents, when children are sent away from the family home not for bad behaviour – but for the sake of their education. We follow four eight-year-old girls as they adjust to a new life away from their parents and their home. Each of their parents has decided that their child will be better off boarding in a private school, in this instance Highfield, one of the best boarding schools in the UK. But how do they cope being separated from their families at such a young age? And how in particular do the mothers deal with the difficult decision of sending their offspring away to be educated? Nurture is the new home for captivating and interesting documentaries and shows about all things parenting. We will be uploading every week so subscribe to keep updated.

Check out our new website for more incredible documentaries: HD and ad-free. https://goo.gl/LwMcmY Four British narcoleptics on a journey that takes them to the city that never sleeps. They've spent their lives isolated - knowing no-one with their condition and unaware of what they can do to get on top of their sleep disorder. Laughing, dating, even sex can all trigger narcolepsy making their day-to-day life very difficult. All that could be about to change. Â In April 2008 the Narcolepsy Network in the US will hold it's first ever spring retreat - a giant sleepover in upstate New York for dozens of Americans who can't stop nodding off. It's a mammoth affair - a weekend of laughter workshops, music energisers and seminars about sex and intimacy. Learning how to deal with these trigger points is what the Narcolepsy Network is all about. British narcoleptics have never been to this event - until now. At the heart of this film is a life-changing journey for four British narcoleptics who are struggling to make the most of their lives as a result of their condition. This is a therapeutic pilgrimage for them, a world away from the isolated lives they lead here in the UK. The journey itself is at the centre of the therapy - the simple fact of travelling together and experiencing things together is beneficial for narcoleptics - but the retreat destination where they will practice radical ways to control their narcolepsy, will be equally important for them.

This video starts out with my wife and I being up for almost 48 hours. As you can see we were a little ""bug eyed." Juliana (then named Irina) was such a joy to be around as she is now. She was about 20 months old when we adopted her. You will see video of our approach to the orphanage as it was hidden between apartment buildings which is normal in that city. It was in August but the orphanage workers insisted on her wearing a Winter coat.

Check out our new website for more incredible documentaries: HD and ad-free. https://goo.gl/LwMcmY In 1990 Romania, the world was stunned by what was revealed: Images of orphanages, of starving, freezing unloved children, suffering shocking untold misery. Crammed into small rooms, bed-bound on rotting faeces stained matresses, they were closeted away from the society and often malnourished. Many of them in fact were not orphans, but had been placed in the institutions by the desperately poor families who had been forced to have more children than necessary as part of Nicolae Ceausescu’s insane population building policy. Thousands of parents all over the world responded by going to Romania to adopt a child. In some cases it took as little as two weeks to complete the process. 324 children were officially adopted into English families and 787 into Irish families. This documentary will tell some of their stories, as we trace the progress of a group of these Romanian orphans and their adoptive families. Want to watch more full-length Documentaries?

Check out our new website for more incredible documentaries: HD and ad-free. https://goo.gl/LwMcmY A mixture of engaging stories with accessible popular science about the human body, this revealing insight into some of the world’s smallest people, including primordial dwarf He Ping Ping, the world’s shortest man who weighs the same as an average one year old, and Britain's shortest man Michael Henbury, whose young son towers above him. Explaining what effect their height has on their health and what challenges these extraordinary people face when it comes to finding work, love and happiness, the programme candidly reveals what life is like from their unique perspective, and their attempts to find happiness and acceptance in a world that often treats them as freaks.
