Inside Birmingham Children's Hospital Narrated By David Tennant Continues Tonight
The heart-warming documentary series, Inside Birmingham Children's Hospital, which is narrated by David Tennant, continues on Channel 4 at 9pm tonight.
This is the last episode before another break in the series, this time for the Paralympics.
Set in the heart of Britain’s second city, the series combines single camera documentary film making with a multi-camera rig set up throughout the hospital to give a 360 degree perspective on the whole hospital, its staff and of course, those that pass through its doors daily, all set against conversations round the dinner table at home and the fraught, funny and all too recognisable family car journeys to and from the hospital.
The series also features and hears from more than 50 members of staff ranging from leading surgeons and Emergency consultants to specialised nurses, technicians and clinical child psychologists as they care not just for their patients, but the emotional wellbeing of the whole families they have in tow.
During the series, we’ll follow a number of stories; from life-threatening illnesses and deeply personal psychological challenges to time-honoured childhood bumps and scrapes.
Inside Birmingham Children's Hospital
Tuesday 6th September, 9pm
When children come along and a relationship becomes a parenting partnership, couples learn a lot about each other. And when their child's health is in danger, they learn an awful lot more, sometimes testing even the strongest relationships. This episode follows three children facing very different challenges, and three couples relying on each other as never before. Accident-prone four-year-old Finley is putting first-time parents Mark and Nicola through their paces in the Emergency Department waiting room. Sitting still is not on his agenda, even though he has an alarming cut on his forehead; just his latest mishap as his mum and dad climb the steep learning curve of early parenthood. Meanwhile, 10-year-old Louie faces the prospect of major heart surgery with quiet courage. But his parents Kerry and Damien struggle to hide their anxieties about the surgery and also worry about his response to their fear. The family's story follows their journey to - and through - surgery with help from the hospital's therapy team. And 18-month-old Leyton is rushed to hospital in grave danger after an accident at home. In a world that's suddenly full of uncertainties, his parents Adam and Serena can rely on their love, strength and support for each other.
