Bleach, Nip, Tuck: The White Beauty Myth

Strong language and detailed footage of surgical procedures which some viewers may find disturbing
Michael Jackson's radical facial transformation was shrouded in secrecy and became a contentious subject for discussion. Many saw him as a sell-out, betraying his ethnic heritage. For others he is a source of inspiration, paving the way for people to use surgery and science to change their race. Part of the Race: Science's Last Taboo season, these programmes examine the emerging trend for deracialisation surgery through the stories of six people who want to go to extreme lengths to westernise their bodies and faces. The film also interviews the surgeons willing to make their dreams come true. Whether it's a more Caucasian nose, longer legs, wider eyes, or even less body hair, plastic surgery and science are making anything possible. The programme asks whether it is right to want to erase your inherited ethnic features to fit in to a predominantly white society.

[edit] The Body

The Body follows the emotional journeys of ethnic minorities desperate to change their bodies, as well as showing incredible surgery including pioneering limb lengthening procedures.

[edit] The Face

The Face follows three people who are desperate for 'whiter' facial features. We also find out how westernization surgery is thriving across the globe - from double eyelid and 'face smashing' surgery in South Korea, to nose jobs in Pakistan.
