Filmed around the clock over 56 days, the new series offers amazing access to one of Britain’s busiest A&E departments under more pressure than ever, St Georges Hospital London.
108 high definition cameras, the most ever used in a series of this kind, capture dramatic stories of love, life and death unfolding every day.
Each programme focuses on people who were treated within the same 24-hour period, capturing the joy and heartache faced by patients and their families, as well as the hard work and professionalism of the A&E staff.
The new series captures life in all the areas of St Georges A&E from the waiting room to the CT scanner, where life and death diagnoses are made, Paediatrics, where children are treated and the Resus room where doctors deal with life-changing injuries every day.
From victims of acts of violence on the streets and people making heart-breaking bedside decisions right through to children with pieces of Lego stuck up their noses, 24 Hours in A&E is an intimate, powerful, sometimes comic – but ultimately heart-warming - portrait of modern Britain in all its variety.
