A Dad Is Born - A Wonderland Film (BBC Two, Thursday, Wales, 9pm) * When it comes to pregnancy, most of the attention is lavished on the woman - after all, it's her body that undergoes a staggering change and then eventually gives birth to a brand new little person. But during that nine months, the expectant father - if he's any sort of decent bloke anyway - is also there, trying to give as much support as he can while coming to terms with having his entire life turned upside down. Raising a child is a long process, and dealing with that realisation during the nine months of pregnancy can either be a wonderful experience, or a terrifyingly daunting one, depending on your outlook. This programme aims to chart the emotions felt by three men in the weeks before and after they become fathers. City HR worker Jamie is taking the practical approach, reading as many self-help books as he can. Reformed womaniser Viktor, a cab driver, is determined that becoming a family man will be the making of him, while multi-millionaire trader Greg hopes his girlfriend's pregnancy offers him a second chance to make up for past mistakes. Expect tears aplenty from a moving and revealing documentary from award-winning film-maker Kira Phillips.
