This fascinating new fly-on-the-wall series goes inside the office of a US couples therapist as she explores their relationship issues over 20 appointments.

Dr Orna Guralnik speaks to real couples who are struggling with issues including whether to become parents, what happened on a traumatic birthday, and if they should stay together at all.

Late last year, Channel 5 aired a documentary about British nanny Louise Woodward who was convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of Matthew Eappen, an eight-month-old baby in her care when she worked in the US as a teenager in 1997.

This is Channel 4's turn at revisiting the case and in this second episode of three, it looks at how the defence argued Woodward had not shaken Eappen to death, as well as interviewing jurors about their decision.

Woodward's conviction was reduced from second-degree murder in an appeal after her trial, and her sentence of 15 years went down to time served, meaning she was freed immediately.
