Channel 4 will continue to spend 24 hours in A&E after commissioning 30 more episodes of the award-winning documentary.
Unlike previous series – which were filmed at King’s College Hospital – the new slate of episodes are to be filmed at St George’s Hospital in Tooting, South West London.
The observational documentary series, which concluded its sixth series last night, depicts the around-the-clock goings on at a busy A&E department and routinely attracts up to 3 million viewers.
The series was first broadcast in 2011 and has also won its fair share of critical acclaim picking up the 2012 RTS Award for Best Documentary Series.
“24 Hours in A&E is one of Channel 4’s best loved and longest running observational documentary series. Because all the cases come from one 24 hour period, no two programmes are quite alike.
“Over three years and seventy episodes, we’ve captured the incredible work done by the dedicated staff at King’s. It’s sad to be leaving King’s and we’re incredibly grateful for the welcome given to us by the staff and patients, but it’s also exciting to be moving a few miles down the road to meet the team at St George’s.
“We’re looking forward to working with them and sharing their stories with the series’ fans.” – Channel 4’s Documentary Commissioning Editor, Madonna Benjamin
Transmission dates of the new programmes are to be confirmed.
