BBC documentary, a profile of leading transplant surgeon Professor Roy Calne, of Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.

Profile of Professor Roy Calne who performed the first UK organ transplant operations. Extensive interviews with the surgeon discussing his early life as a medical student, his motivations and ambitions; the pioneering medical research he undertook in the 1950s that led to the first transplant operations and his current post as Professor of Surgery with Trinity Hall, Cambridge and as surgeon at Addenbrookes Hospital. Professor Calne discusses the effects of transplant surgery on the lives of patients and talks frankly in response to the negative publicity about the morality and ethics of transplanting organs from the dead. Footage within the hospital wards present the patients who benefit from Professor Calne’s work. The surgeon’s wife, Patsy, comments on her husband’s professional work and the impact it has on family life. Further interviews reveal Professor Calne’s opinions on the National Health Service and attitudes to vivisection in medical research. The Pace-setters theme music is accompanied by a montage of shots from the episode.
