Transplant

"Transplant" to be broadcast on BBC1 tonight at 10:35pm (UK).

  
I'm really looking forward to seeing this important film later tonight.   I was involved with the planning and early stages of production, but I haven't seen it yet.  I was "on call" as a shooting director for the film, but in the end, I had started another project by the time filming started.  There were quite a few people involved in the making of this film, and in the research period of the production I was lucky enough to witness a transplant operation in full.  The film features incredible, life-saving operations, which are only made possible thanks to the altruism of others.

The Guardian, The Mirror and The Evening Standard all have previews; and it will be available on iplayer after the broadcast.  The BBC news website has an accompanying in-depth article.

And of course, once you have seen this, you might want to consider signing up to be a donor...
