Season 20, Episode 1
The RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a 20th series, following patients treated in the same 24-hour period at St George’s in south west London. On one of the busiest days of the year at St George’s, this episode focuses on motherhood, the incredible sacrifices that are made for our children, and what it means to have a family. Twelve-year-old George is airlifted to St Georges after he is struck by a motorcycle at speed on his way home from school. Doctors are concerned that the extensive damage to his leg could lead to permanent disability. His mother Caroline is by his bedside and opens up about George’s difficulties in early life, and nearly losing him once already. Tanveer, who’s 26, has come off his moped at speed, suffering a serious head injury that has left him with no memory of the event. Mum Kamal discusses the extraordinary path her life has taken – from Uganda to India and finally to the UK, and how these struggles have shaped her as a mother. In paediatrics, nine-year-old Amber suffers severe stomach pains and vomiting, as doctors worry it could be an appendicitis. Amber’s mum Chanelle opens up about her own childhood on an island paradise, and the sacrifices that her own mother made for her family.
