FROM THIS EPISODE

Quick. What's 789 times 267? Do the math in your head. This week we have stories where people's reactions move even slower than yours are now. Including the story of a wedding 17 years in the making and what it's like when you have a terminal illness that's supposed to kill you in a year or two, and it decides to take its time. (Note: This program includes a story not suitable for children.)
