Twelve series later and the award-winning Channel 4 documentary series, 24 hours in A&E, still manages to captivate its audience with heartwarming stories of love, family and bravery.
With a fly-on-the-wall approach to filming, the cameras capture the highs and lows of life and loss on the busy A&E ward of St George’s Hospital in south west London – through all the pain it’s the touching stories of love that make the show such a moving documentary.
It tonight’s episode we follow the story of 80-year-old Frances who, still fiercely independent, has fallen three metres into her empty swimming pool whilst gardening and has been brought to St George’s with a series, and potentially life-changing, head injury. We also meet Ruth who, before departing on a cruise, has arrived in A&E with a heart rate three times what it should be.
24 Hours in A&E continues tonight on Channel 4 at 9pm – previous episodes are available on catch up.
