    Synopsis and trailer follow...

    The series opens in 1961, a time when Britain was on the brink of the Sixties revolution, abortion is legal and the contraceptive pill is only just becoming available to married women. Set in and around a busy Gynaecology unit, medicine becomes the perfect stage to play out the shifting and complex moral codes of early 1960’s society.

    Otto Powell, is a brilliant and charismatic surgeon, who passionately believes he can make a difference to women’s lives. His marriage to the elegant Elizabeth appears to be idyllic, as beautiful people living the consumerist dream, they are the envy of our other couples. But Otto and Elizabeth are hiding a devastating secret, an event in their past which could shatter the careful illusion they have created.
