Bleach, Nip & Tuck - C4, 10pm1256680800-722558-BleachNi-12560351790.jpgMichael Jackson's radical facial transformation was shrouded in secrecy and became a contentious subject for discussion. Many saw him as a sell-out, betraying his ethnic heritage. For others he is a source of inspiration, paving the way for people to use surgery and science to change their race. This series examines the emerging trend for deracialisation surgery through the stories of six people who want to go to extreme lengths to westernise their bodies and faces. The series also interviews the surgeons willing to make their dreams come true. Whether it's a more Caucasian nose, longer legs, wider eyes, or even less body hair, plastic surgery and science are making anything possible. The series asks whether it is right to want to erase your inherited ethnic features to fit in to a predominantly white society. The first programme, The Body, follows the emotional journeys of ethnic minorities desperate to change their bodies, as well as showing incredible surgery including pioneering limb-lengthening procedures.Half hour later...Make Me White, 10.35pm - BBC1Skin lightening is big business. The market for cosmetics to lighten darker skin is now reported to be worth millions of pounds; Anita Rani (presenter of Watchdog and The One Show) is on a journey to find out why. Starting in her own family, with her mother's preference for lighter skin, she explores the pressures within the Asian community that lead a growing number of people to want to "lighten up".Illegal cosmetics are available under the counter in Asian and Afro-Caribbean shops up and down the country. Many illegal creams contain banned chemicals which pose health risks and can cause irreversible damage. Rani goes undercover to see how readily available they are, and she meets one woman who regrets ever using them.She takes a hard look at the businesses that make money on the promise of lightening dark skin, and tackles the cosmetic distributors and lifestyle magazines that promote and advertise skin lightening products.Finally, Rani tests one of the legal leading brand skin lightening products for herself. Will it work?Believe any of it?

If bleaching was a discreet way to lighten your skin a few tones I could understand some people using it but most if not all users of bleach end up looking hideous.

Why?White people tan to make their skin darker, do you find that sad?The title of the programme is ridiculous too. Just because they want to make thei skin lighter doesn't mean they want to be ethnically white.

tanning your skin is not as bad as trying to get lighter. its naturally possible to get a tan, but not to get lighter.
