A brand new three part series, the first featuring Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Three babies born on the same day. One of them has found fame, the others live out of the public eye, but each one of them has an extraordinary story to tell, of triumph and tragedy, love and hardship. Born on the Same Day is a major new popular history series for Channel 4. It looks at key moments in the parallel lives of three people, who were born on exactly the same day in the same year. From birth to the present, we see how their lives entwine with the major social and political events of our time, and ask - what are the events and the decisions in life that make us who we are?
