More men with prostate cancer could be successfully treated with radiotherapy, thanks to a major breakthrough by scientists in York. They have discovered what makes some cancerous cells so resistant to radiation.
And they have identified that a cancer drug - currently in trials - could reduce its resistance. It could give hope to the three thousands sufferers a year for whom radiotherapy is ineffective. Michael Billington talks to scientists from the Yorkshire Cancer Research Unit and survivor David Falgate.

Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott has paid tribute to former England captain Jamie Peacock for the way he coped with his father's two-year battle with terminal cancer.
Darryl Peacock passed away on Friday - just 24 hours after his son played a key role in the Rhinos' 20-6 win at Wigan.
Peacock, who drove himself to Wigan after leaving his 59-year -old father's bedside and returned to the hospice straight after the match, had dedicated his rugby to his father since November 2011 when he was diagnosed with lung cancer and given only months to live.
McDermott, who played with Jamie Peacock at Bradford, said: "On behalf of everyone connected to the Rhinos, we would like to send our deepest sympathies and condolences to Jamie, his mum and his entire family at this difficult time.
"It is a mark of the man and his dedication and commitment to our club that he played on Thursday night.
"Not only did he play, just as his dad would have wanted him to, but he was once again one of our leading players in the victory.
"We know that this has been a tough few months for the whole Peacock family but they know that they have the love and support of everyone connected to the club."
