King’s A&E TV series victorious at Royal Television Awards
23 March 2012 -
The Channel 4 series ‘24 Hours in A&E’ won the award for best documentary series at the awards held on Tuesday, 20 March.
24 Hours in A&E - filmed in the Accident and Emergency Department at King’s College Hospital -beat two other documentaries – Educating Essex and Fighting on the Front Line- to scoop the top prize.
24 Hours in A&E was broadcast in the summer of 2011, and gave viewers behind the scenes access to the A&E at King’s, which treats nearly 400 patients every day.
The series enabled viewers to see the unique set of challenges - including the highs and lows - that King's A&E staff face as they treat the hundreds of patients that come through its doors every day.
The Royal Television Society judging panel praised 24 Hours in A&E for its "brilliant narrative and, despite so much of it being harrowing, television that was uplifting and heart-warming: love, life and death up-close and raw.”
