Josie Long presents new short documentaries on searching for hope in the gathering dark.
John McCarthy and Brian Keenan look back on a single act of human kindness that glows amid much darker memories, a late night conversation explores the hope bound up in playing the lottery, and we hear as voices fade in a Danish hospice.
Featuring John McCarthy and Brian Keenan
