Abstract: "On Monday, December 4, 1967 the world awoke to the incredible news that the first heart transplant in human history had been performed the night before. What made this more astonishing was that this historic operation had been performed not in America. Britain or Europe but on the southern tip of Africa, in Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town. I was a member of that first heart- transplant team, led by my brother, Professor Chris Barnard."
