Face the Consequences
Young people making reckless lifestyle choices come face to face with someone whose life was destroyed by this kind of behaviour
A touching documentary series following the young tissue donation team and staff at NHS Blood and Transplant’s human tissue bank in Liverpool. This series meets the dedicated team whose job it is to retrieve life-saving tissue from the deceased and reveals the extraordinary process from death to the recycling of human tissue in the living.
Away from the medical process of the retrievals, we meet some of the many young tissue recipients as their lives are transformed through the generosity of donors. From those nearly blinded by disease, teenagers whose young lives have been put on hold and young children facing life and death situations, this is the unseen, intimate and fascinating world of tissue donation.
