The Woman With No Face


On September 14th at 10pm, Channel 5 will be airing a Captive Minds original production: The Woman With No Face.

This one hour documentary follows the story of beauty queen and young mum Tambudzai Makinzi – Tambu to friends and family – as she undergoes a pioneering operation here in the UK to remove a giant 2kg tumour which has destroyed her face, taken her eyesight and robbed her of her sense of smell. Her daughter Pearl, now five, has never seen her mother’s true face.
