Groundbreaking TV that delivers a unique, sensitive and ultimately uplifting approach to the end of life. Each episode, one individual facing the end of their life makes the decision to leave something unique behind for their loved ones, to be delivered after they're gone. Unlike a normal will, these are not material things but messages, experiences and surprises which speak about both the giver and the recipient and the time they had together. The series interweaves beautifully presented interviews with the main protagonist, introducing each surprise and explaining to viewers why the recipient holds such an important place in their life. Each episode features 5 or 6 surprises. Surprises might be a unique experience (e.g. a parachute jump), happenings which come out of nowhere, or a bespoke visit to a location special to both people. Each also comes with a pre-recorded message from the protagonist, which may be the first time the recipient has heard their voice since they died. All the surprises are bespoke to the recipient to celebrate the life of their friend or relative. Although there are tears, there will also be laughter, joy and most importantly happy memories about their loved one who has passed away. Also available as a 60 min primetime format.
