12 Apr 06, 1:27 PM - The Miracle Boat
Tonight at 8.30pm on BBC FOUR, you can see The Miracle Boat. This is a documentary charting the success of the Hilwai, a floating orthopaedic clinic, established by the French charity, Handicap International. The 50-foot boat, manned by local people, seeks out those in need, stranded on the Philippines' seven thousand remote islands, and manufactures prosthetic limbs for them.
For a more in-depth description of what the documentary will cover, and to read a couple of the clinic's success stories, check out this BBC news story.
The programme will be repeated on Friday 14 April at 2.00am.
