The programme will be available on the BBC i player for a month after transmission so anyone interested can catch up with it.  Obviously viewers  from other parts of the UK can access  BBC Scotland these days. 

The BBC  has a programme page with a trailer and a couple of clips from the programme.

Looking forward to this, hope it isn't just about hot flushes and hrt though. Be good to be about the issues people don't know about.

That's fine Cazikins, I can't access NICE guidelines too... the UK is a very exclusive place in the world.  ;)

I thought this was really good - well done to the makers. Covered quite a lot of topics really very well. I personally found the DEXA bone scan piece interesting as I did have a nagging feeling about not taking HRT because of potential bone problems. With no family history, and being non smoking and just about non drinking, and an active lifestyle I feel I am low risk, so that was really useful.

 :thankyou: for letting us know about this!

Has anyone else managed to see the programme yet? What did you think?

I saw it on iPlayer last night and agree with you nearly50 - thought it was really well put together/edited and covered a huge variety of topics in a very short time - from flushes to bones, sex to magnets, surgical menopause to fertility, HRT types to GP education, not to mention the importance of lifestyle and diet, and the British Menopause Society! Really great to have the top women talking about the issues and treatments and not just the male gynaes who are often interviewed/reported on when there are HRT controversies for example. I loved the Ab Fab clip as well :)

This should be compulsory viewing for everyone - should be shown at prime time in rest of the UK too!!
