This feature-length programme follows seven patients at Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital waiting heart transplants.

From patients ranging from the ages of eight months to 56-years-old, we follow the doctors as they try out new techniques to improve the operations and the likelihood the organs won’t fail. However, the operation is still a troublesome procedure.

Heart Transplant: a Chance to Live is on BBC Two at 22.00.
