Tonight - 7pm - Donor family meeting recipient
Tonight, The One Show will broadcast a film showing the first meeting of the family of 10-year-old deceased organ donor Evey Staley, and five year old heart recipient Scarlet Ungurs.
The families arranged the meeting and contacted The One Show themselves, after initial contact through the NHS. We were informed near the planned date of filming and have been seeking to influence the piece.
NHSBT have provided an interview through a Specialist Nurse in Organ Donation, plus statistics and background information. They will also be handling all post broadcast follow-up media requests.
There will be several transplant recipients including one from the BKPA in the audience, for a planned segment to further demonstrate how donation saves lives.
