New se­ries. Mel Giedroyc and Matt Baker meet peo­ple who would like to find some­one af­ter many years so they can say thank you or sorry. In 1987, sol­dier Pa­trick Pro­vis was left fight­ing for his life af­ter be­ing hit by an IRA mor­tar. An Army he­li­copter crew flew in to res­cue him – and Pa­trick can­not rest un­til he has thanked the per­son who took the de­ci­sion to save him. Grace Bates has spent al­most 60 years want­ing to apol­o­gise to Her­man, the first man she ever loved. They met as teenagers in the 1950s, but a ter­ri­ble mis­take by Grace left Her­man heart­bro­ken.
