The drama of people's lives and the journeys they make. Marc Humphreys needed a heart/lung transplant or he would die. He had been on the waiting list for longer than average.
His time was running out and his only hope of a cure for the deteriorating emphysema that made him a prisoner in his own home was for the transplant team at Papworth Hospital,
Cambridgeshire to find a suitable donor.
Marc, a talented engineer and inventor, was on the brink of a successful future when the disease struck.
The Visit started filming him at the beginning of this year. Marc became worse. At the last moment, a donor was found. The operation took place just a few weeks' ago and it seemed a success. For a month Marc worked to recover fully - then an infection struck him. In spite of heroic efforts by the hospital team, he died.
Almost his last wish was that the film of his fight for a transplant would still go out. It is now a memorial to his courage and a tribute to the transplant team.
