An intimate portrait of the human heart interweaves the sounds of the operating theatre and the music of Italian opera.

In an exploration of our most powerfully symbolic organ, a special programme to mark National Heart Week follows the fight for life at the front line of a bypass operation from the point of view of a heart surgeon and his patient, opera lovers both.

The readers are Tamara Kennedy and Crawford Logan.
