Tells the fascinating story of Maggie's - a unique cancer charity which began life in Edinburgh 20 years ago and which in the intervening years has expanded and gone global. The charity now has centres across the UK, as well as in Hong Kong and Tokyo with centres planned in Holland, Spain and Norway. Since the death of the founder - Maggie Keswick Jencks in 1993, the most prominent names in world architecture from Zaha Hadid to Frank Gehry have designed astonishing landmark buildings bearing her name. In 2016 Maggie's celebrates its 20th anniversary, and will open its 20th centre. The programme features interviews with world renowned architects Frank Gehry, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster.
