"It turns out there is such a thing as society after all." Walker is the anchor of BBC1's "Breakfast", also hosts "Football Focus" and regularly presents "Match of the Day". Along the way, he has encountered a host of remarkable people and in this "celebration of goodness, kindness and humanity", he re-tells some of their wonderfully heartwarming stories, highlighting such issues as deprivation, inequality, loneliness and mental health in the process. In so doing, he is determined to shine a light on the "kindliness, compassion and selflessness which continue to characterise so many people and their actions right across the country".
