From the Heart
Wed Feb 13, 8-10pm, ITV
Wed Feb 6 2013
A problem followed by a neat solution, here. First, what Jennifer Aniston might have referred to as ‘the science bit’. In a ‘Tonight’ special at 8pm, Jonathan Maitland highlights the acute shortage of organ donors and follows a five year old as he waits for a heart. He also wonders why fewer than a third of the UK population are registered as organ donors.
Still, maybe showbiz can succeed where ad campaigns have failed. From 9pm, Dermot O’Leary will be presenting a one-off entertainment extravaganza in which the likes of Rowan Atkinson, Hugh Laurie, Pixie Lott, Harry Enfield and the cast of ‘Outnumbered’ will be pledging their support. But no vital organs in the post please. Instead, expect to be badgered to sign up to the NHS Organ Donor Register.
