NOVA: Transplanting Hope Every ten minutes, another person in the U.S. is added to the waiting list for an organ transplant, joining more than 100,000 others. And a dire shortage of organs means every opportunity for a transplant has to count. With extraordinary access to patients and transplant teams, NOVA takes you inside the operating room to witness the emotional, high-stakes process of transferring organs from donors to recipients. Meet families navigating both sides of the transplant journey - and researchers pushing the boundaries of medicine in an effort to beat the odds. Their efforts to understand organ rejection, discover ways to keep organs alive outside the body, and even grow 'bio-artificial'' organs with stem cells, could save countless lives.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
