New episode of 24 Hours in A&E: Turn Back Time…
Filmed during the autumn of 2020, the RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a twenty fourth 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 patients from three different generations and explores how our loved ones can be a catalyst for change.
