Dustin Lance Black, the Oscar-winning screenwriter and activist, explores attitudes towards surrogacy. He shares his own journey to have a child, with husband Tom Daley, through surrogacy. Lance explores the personal, scientific, financial and legal aspects of surrogacy. He talks to women who are surrogates, hears the experiences of straight and gay intended parents who have built a family via surrogacy and raises concerns about the current surrogacy laws in the UK. He asks ‘why are some people uncomfortable with surrogacy?’.

Lance meets anti-surrogacy campaigners and visits one of the US’s leading reproductive clinics in California which specialises in surrogacy and has clients from all over the world.
