Fat Doc­tor

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Fri­day, 7.30pm, Bio Ac­cord­ing to this doc­u­men­tary se­ries, 13 mil­lion adults in Bri­tain are over­weight, as many men as women. ‘‘ We eat too much and we ex­er­cise too lit­tle,’’ says the nar­ra­tor, as if she weren’t stat­ing the bleed­ing ob­vi­ous. Then it’s down to case his­to­ries. In this sec­ond episode we meet two men, one who has been bat­tling the bulge for most of his life, and an­other who, as Paul McCart­ney sang in Yes­ter­day, is just half the man he used to be. Grue­some at times, es­pe­cially dur­ing sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dures, but it sure gets its wor­thy mes­sage home.
