The RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a twenty first 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 people who’ve lived through tragic, life-changing events, and explores how individuals endure with the strength and support of their loved ones.

80-year old Susan is rushed to A&E after falling while out walking her dog. Doctors are concerned that she’s sustained a potentially life-changing open fracture to her ankle. Her daughter Meagan comes to her side in resus and reveals how her mother escaped a string of damaging relationships while living in South Africa.

Meanwhile, specialist doctors race against time to save 86-year old Fillipo after he suffers a major stroke. His daughter Maria recounts Fillipo’s journey from Italy to the United Kingdom, and describes a devastating loss that brought the two of them closer together.
