A Forty Minutes documentary series in seven parts, filmed at Harefield Hospital.
Vaju Manek is in theatre awaiting his heart transplant operation. At a nearby hospital Mr Magdi Yacoub is removing the heart from a young traffic-accident victim. Very soon, unforeseen complications arise at Harefield. There are adhesions in Mr Manek's chest - the aftermath of a previous operation. Once the chest is opened, bleeding occurs, which is almost impossible to stop. The operation progresses, but in the small hours of the morning blood-donors are summoned, first from donor-panels, then from the services and the police. Despite the efforts of the surgical team, all is in vain The transplant is a technical success, but Vaju Manek dies on the following day.
