SKY1, 9pm This ex­tra­or­di­nary se­ries fol­lows four ter­mi­nally ill peo­ple who have ar­ranged for gifts, sur­prises and mes­sages to be de­liv­ered to their loved ones from be­yond the grave.

And writ­ing this through blurry tears, it’s im­pos­si­ble not to cry as rel­a­tives and friends are let into se­crets de­signed to in­spire, thank, de­light and com­fort.

But don’t let the sub­ject mat­ter put you off – while no doubt emo­tional, this is mostly an up­lift­ing and lovely film. “it’s your turn to have a won­der­ful life,” says 56-year-old ian Ed­munds, di­ag­nosed with ad­vanced prostate can­cer and the sub­ject of this first episode.

For him, death will not be the fi­nal word – he wants to leave a last­ing legacy.

ian died in June 2016 but months later, there is an un­ex­pected event for his cousin Gary, who was like a brother to him, and his wife Chris­tine is treated to a spec­tac­u­lar and poignant sur­prise.
