0x01 The Making of 24 Hours in A&E (June 04, 2013)


24 Hours in A&E is one of Channel 4's groundbreaking and critically acclaimed programmes. This documentary takes a look behind the scenes at how this large-scale production is made through every stage of the process. It asks why King's College Hospital allowed the cameras in, what impact the series has had on the hospital staff, and why the public agree to be filmed. Unlike most documentaries, the series captures life in the Emergency Department using what's called a 'fixed rig'. This programme captures the rig being set up, as 92 remotely-operated cameras, 100 microphones and 16 miles of wiring are installed in the department by technicians. The programme shows how the crew of 170 - an unprecedented number for a documentary - is assembled and trained. The team work on site for six weeks of non-stop round-the-clock filming, handling 8000 hours of footage to make 28 episodes of the series, which is broadcast in 54 countries.
