"From Wednesday 24 September at 10.35pm viewers will be treated to a series of high quality and compelling films which reflect life in contemporary Britain.

"As Strand Editor, I've commissioned films from some of the most talented and innovative directors in the UK. The results offer an unflinching view of the realities of everyday life.

"They also show the incredible warmth, honesty and hope that often surfaces in the way in which we live our lives.

"Some of the films are observational, others are characterised by the director's personal take on a subject, whilst another is narrated by the film's principal character.

"The strand is moving, thought-provoking, revelatory and ambitious in the range of subjects it covers.

"As social documentaries they are distinctively upbeat. I hope you enjoy them."

Todd Austin, Strand Editor, ONE life
