Prepare to laugh and cry with one of the highlights of the BBC Children in Need appeal this week. The charity has collaborated with BBC Radio Four to produce this truly heart-warming new drama by acclaimed writer Sarah Daniels and all-star cast.

The story is inspired by one of the projects funded by BBC Children in Need, the Siblings Project at Bluebell Wood Hospice for Children near Sheffield, which supports the siblings of children with life-limiting conditions.

An extraordinarily moving, funny and truthful story about how love really can be stronger than death.
