Horizon

9:00pm Monday 9 April on BBC TWO

Horizon follows three patients undergoing some of the very latest ground-breaking treatments for cancer.

More than one in three of us will develop cancer at some point in our lives. With such high numbers, few are left untouched by the disease.

But cancer medicine is changing. Horizon spent three months with the Royal Marsden Hospital and their scientific partner, the Institute of Cancer Research, witnessing their latest ways of tackling the disease – from the arrival of a radiotherapy robot to the development of revolutionary drugs that target precise genetic faults.

Will it be enough for hospital patients Phil, Ray and Rosemary? And for all of us, what hope do we have of defeating cancer in the future?
