Transplanting Hope

Synopsis
This programme takes the viewer inside the operating room to witness the emotional, high-stakes process of transferring organs from donors to recipients. Meet families navigating both sides of the transplant journey - and researchers pushing the boundaries of medicine in an effort to beat the odds. Their efforts to understand organ rejection, discover ways to keep organs alive outside the body, and even grow ‘bio-artificial’' organs with stem cells, could save countless lives.
