Do not miss 20/20 - the best of New Zealand and international Current Affairs with reporters, Emma Keeling, Hannah Ockelford, Erin Conroy and Sonya Wilson

This week on 20/20:

The Coolest Gift:

Last year Aaron Coull lost the will to live. For nine years his heart had been deteriorating and he could not take it anymore.

He wanted to go home and spend his final days with his wife and kids. Then a phone call - someone had died and the heart was a match for Aaron.

All he could think about was the pain the donor family must have been going through.

Little did he know that five months later, through coincidence or fate he would meet the family of the man who'd saved his life. 20/20 has the story of one heart that brought two families together.

Who's Your Daddy:

How far will some women go to become a mum?

In a surprising trend, thousands of women, and couples are turning to a bold new option. Instead of expensive and invasive sperm banks and fertility clinics, they are getting free sperm on the internet.

20/20 follows several women desperate to have children and willing to turn to this underground universe of online link-ups, meeting men on the internet to exchange this gift of life. But the possible rewards are not without risks.

The Middle:

What do you call a show about a middle class family living in Midwest America? How about The Middle?

The name may be boring but there's enough dysfunction in the Heck family to keep you entertained.

The show stars everybody loves Raymond actress Patricia Heaton as the mum. And as Emma Keeling discovered, the actors are happily dysfunctional too.
