The Boy Who Gave His Heart Away is probably the best known of the documentaries and series I’ve written and presented for BBC Radio 4. This true story of a modern medical miracle won Audio Moment of the Year at the Arias and a few other awards before becoming a book and even a one-man stage show. The most recent are The Power of Three and The Wedding Detectives. They’re all produced beautifully by Jonathan Mayo.
