Born in Bradford

Winifred Robinson follows the fortunes of some of the thousands of babies being tracked by the Bradford Institute for Health Research in an effort to find out why genetic disorders and cases of infant and child mortality are so high in the city of Bradford. Eventually, 10,000 families will be recruited in what will be the most ambitious study of children's health ever undertaken in the world. This is the first of three programmes to be broadcast over 18 months that will follow the progress of the study.
