The RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a sixteenth 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 – Mother’s Courage – focuses on a Mother’s role in different family units.

20 year old Jacob arrives in resus with suspected internal bleeding after crashing his car into a wall at high speed.

82 year old Joan is treated for a head wound after tripping down the stairs at home and 7 year old Jackson is treated for a suspected infection on his cheek.

Tune in tonight (Monday 19 November) at 9pm on Channel 4.
