This is basically a 90 minute advert for organ donation, NHS funding, medical research and immigration. It's absolutely terrific, mixing the 'human' story with the scientific. It follows a number of patients waiting for heart transplants, with interviews with them and for the nurses and doctors caring for them. It is extremely moving; sometimes uplifting, oftentimes very sad. Apparently 70-80% of potential donor hearts have to be rejected. Look after your heart, folks: one day someone else might need it.

Cut for some medical detailCollapse )
