The Girl With Two Faces: A Bodyshock Special

In early March 2008, a perfectly healthy baby was born in rural India. But baby Lali was no ordinary child, against odds of 50 million to one this little girl was born with two faces.
This revealing documentary forming part of Channel Four's excellent 'Bodyshock' series follows the Singh family in a race against time as they try to reconcile their mistrust of modern medicine with their desire to keep their daughter alive and healthy.

Lali was born to the impoverished Singh family in the rural village of Saini Sunpura, 50 kilometres from New Delhi, where life has stayed much the same for centuries.
