Premiere date: Thursday, 11 December 2008 at 19:35 on M-Net (PG/13)
The Beautiful Heart is a four-part South African documentary series that focuses on heart-transplant operations performed by Dr Susan Vosloo at the Chris Barnard Memorial Hospital.
The series follows the real-life story of the Gird family, who's daughter needs a heart transplant. Filmed in real time, the series covers the family's wait for a heart donor, never knowing if it's going to happen or not.
As the series unfolds, it follows the family's emotional and physical journey. Every week, Health24's CyberShrink, Prof Michael Simpson, will be commenting on the latest episode.
