The BBC announces a heartbreaking tribute program to Michael Mosley following his tragic death

The BBC has revealed plans for two moving tributes to late TV stalwart Michael Mosley, who tragically died recently while on holiday in Greece.

The upcoming program Michael Mosley – The Doctor Who Changed Britain aims to tell the story of his illustrious television career spanning almost 40 years. This comes after his body was discovered following his disappearance on the island of Symi last Wednesday. The beloved expert was found last Sunday near Agia Marina beach in difficult terrain.

Beginning his career as a doctor, Michael later moved into television presenting. He presented a number of BBC science programs and documentaries, including the popular series Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, which explored medical practices in the UK.
