The RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a twenty sixth 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 – a place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day.

This episode follows the stories of three people dealing with the unpredictability of life.

46-year-old Katie is rushed to St George’s by helicopter after a riding accident where her horse has fallen on top of her, leaving her with multiple broken bones and internal injuries.  As doctors work to establish the extent of the damage, her American husband, Kevin, explains how meeting Katie changed him forever, as she helped him to overcome his social anxiety to flourish in his new life in the UK.

22-year-old Amy has a deep laceration to her ankle after a lockdown party with her flatmates ended with her falling onto a gin glass.  She shares the story of how her ballerina dreams were thwarted by injury, and of how her subsequent desire to move into medicine was brought to an end when her mum was diagnosed with cancer.

Pamela is brought to A&E after a sudden bout of back pain has left her in agony.  Her husband Peter tells us about their 64 years of marriage, from meeting as students in Oxford, to the ill health that Pamela has had to endure in retirement.
