ABC2, 8.30pm

Jono Lancaster was born with a rare ge­netic con­di­tion called Treacher Collins syn­drome, which af­fects the way fa­cial bones de­velop in the womb. Born with­out cheek­bones, the 26- year- old has over­come many ob­sta­cles, in­clud­ing his par­ents putting him up for adop­tion at 36- hours- old, to fi­nally be at peace with his con­di­tion. This in­spir­ing doc­u­men­tary de­tails his path to ac­cep­tance, which in­cludes meet­ing the love of his life and be­ing re­jected by his par­ents again when he tried to make con­tact with them in 2009. It might sound a tad de­press­ing, but Jono’s hon­esty and hu­mour is in­spir­ing stuff – it’s a love story at heart.
