Ever wanted to know how a sex change is done? Under the Knife with Miss Evans follows the work of Miss Christine Evans, Britain's best known no-nonsense genital and urological surgeon. The second episode in a six part series, tonight's film follows the operational journey of Mr Mike Barlow who is about to undergo the last stage of gender transition and become Miss Michelle Barlow. Watch as Michelle's redundant male private parts are sliced, skinned and turned inside out to form her new female genitalia, as Miss Evans tactfully explains 'It's just like skinning a rabbit!'. But will Michelle's operation be a success? And more importantly, what exactly happens when you cut off the penis? (C4 Press)
