KQED 9: Sun, May 12, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

On Cynthia's district rounds, she administers daily insulin to a man who consistently belittles his wife, Annie. A visit from Annie's son and support from Cynthia help Annie gain confidence and start to change her life. Jenny witnesses persecution of a different kind when she looks after a black mother-to-be who is subjected to racial prejudice from neighbors. Funded by the success of the Summer Fete, Nonnatus House takes ownership of a scooter to help with rounds. Fred teaches the midwives to ride - with amusing and unforeseen results. Everyone is thrilled when Chummy and Peter return from Sierra Leone with a surprise.

Episode #206H

KQED 9: Sun, May 5, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

Dr. Turner is determined that Poplar will no longer live under the threat of tuberculosis. While the nuns and nurses support his campaign to bring screening facilities to the area, Jenny's nursing rounds lead her to a family that has suffered devastating misfortune from the disease. Now, Jenny works to reconcile the dying father man and his only remaining daughter. Having secured a visit from a TB screening van, Dr. Turner pulls off an epic day, backed by the midwives, but little can prepare them for what the results will mean for one of their own.
