Fronted by Emma Willis, What Would Be Your Miracle shows the profound emotional impact on people for whom the previously impossible is made possible by advances in medical science.
From walking for the first time and overcoming severely debilitating physical conditions to hearing and seeing once more, this 3x60 series, produced by Optomen Television, will capture what happens when people's lives are changed forever by the power of medicine.
Emma will follow each family's story, hearing their hopes and fears as they undergo life-changing operations and come through the other side to fulfil their dreams of scoring a goal, sailing the seas, hearing their children or seeing the sunset. The series will feature people at all stages of life – from young to old and from a range of backgrounds.
Each patient's story will be told from their existing daily lives through their procedures, to the point where we witness their lives having been radically changed, having previously lived with life-long conditions or the effects of illness or an accident.
Episode 1x3; May 12, 2016
Emma is in Gloucestershire to meet four year-old Charlotte Bottger, her parents, James and Kate, and baby sister, Harriet.
Nine weeks before Kate was due to give birth to Charlotte, a routine check revealed the baby's heart was racing and Kate was rushed to hospital. After being born, Charlotte spent the next seven weeks in a special baby care unit.
