Conjoined twins Ganga and Jamuna are alive and well at 40. Is there still a chance they could be separated? Specialist Dr James Stein visits them to find out, in a programme titled Human Spider Sisters. Then it’s back to Indonesia to revisit Dede, the fisherman with a disfiguring skin disease featured in earlier programme Half Man, Half Tree. Another sufferer has been found, so now Dede will travel to his village to meet him.
A freakshow element runs throughout these shows. But without this exposure, the subjects would have little hope of getting the help they need.
