The RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a fifteenth series following patients treated in the same 24 hour period at St George’s in south west London.

The hospital has one of the busiest A&E departments in Britain – under more pressure than ever.  It’s a place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day.

This episode – A Friend in Need –  shows the importance of true friendship.

Glyn, 53, is brought to St George’s by ambulance after an accident at work on a building site. His leg has been run over by three tonne digger and in his hour of need it’s his lifelong friend Barrie he turns to.

93-year-old John is admitted after falling at home and has a severe case of sepsis.

Eighteen month old Zemirah has diarrhea and vomiting and is brought in by her parents.

Tune in tonight (Wednesday 29 August) at 9pm on Channel 4.
