Description

It’s known as The Silent Killer – blood pressure is one of the world’s growing killers – especially in countries like China where Western diets and a growing lack of exercise are beginning to take their toll.

We travel to Beijing to join Professor Liu Lisheng and her team at Fuwai Hospital, where they are treating more and more people for blood pressure.

In this film we also visit Scotland, where blood pressure has long been a huge public health issue.
