Judge David Johnson is getting all of his surgeries done in Australia from now on, minimally-invasive or not.
You probably remember this story. Conjoined twin girls from Bangladesh, attached at the head, abandoned at a Bangladesh orphanage, and taken in by a compassionate aid worker from Australia. What to do? Get them healthy enough to endure a landmark separation surgery that holds a slim chance for survival, but—if successful—would make history.
Yeah, I have to spoil it: Both kids survived.
The path to survival is riveting stuff and this NOVA documentary captures all the science and human drama that engulfed the journey. And there is plenty of both to be found here.
The disc is adequate: standard definition 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, Dolby 2.0 stereo, no extras. The lack of bonus content is a missed opportunity.
Not Guilty. This is why surgeons get all the girls.
