Would you give your kidney to a stranger? | News

The UK’s living donor scheme allows six people to enter a chain, and three of them will get a new kidney from a stranger. Such chains are anonymous but, for the first time, the Guardian’s Rachel Williams has brought together six participants.

In today’s episode, we hear from those giving and receiving a kidney, and Williams explains how the matches are made possible.

Also: the writer and spoken-word poet Cecilia Knapp reflects on the moments that make Christmas special.
