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.
