CGTN's documentary 'The Gift of Life' earns ABU Producers' Choice Award

“The Gift of Life,” a 60-min documentary produced by China Global Television Network (CGTN), won the Producers’ Choice Award at the 2019 Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union’s TV documentary screening and exchange meeting in Kuala Lumpur on March 7.

“The Gift of Life” is a 60-min documentary on China's organ transplant reform while the country has been endeavoring to divert from its decades-long reliance on organs taken from executed prisoners. 

It approaches the complexity of the issue through human-interest stories. It records how families of organ donors struggle to make their final decisions, how patients suffering terminal diseases wait anxiously for a matched organ that has no due date to be found, and how donation coordinators and transplant surgeons collectively run against time to enable life relays.
