Most humans contain between nine and twelve pints of blood. In Nine Pints, Rose George tells nine different stories about the liquid that sustains us, discovering what it reveals about who we are. Whether it’s through a trip to a controversial plasma clinic on the Canadian prairies, a tour of the UK’s only leech farm, or a visit to a London hospital where the medical team are revolutionising the way we treat trauma. George reveals the richness and wonder of the potent red fluid that courses around our bodies, unseen but miraculous.

Chaired by Harry Pearson
