A very quick heads-up to a series that the BBC will be running over the next three weeks, and which looks very valuable for those studying Growth and Development topics. It kicks off tonight with Four Born Every Second, which looks at the life chances of newly born babies in the rich world and the poor world - BBC1 at 10.35.
