Emergency Nurses

Emergency Nurses: A+E Stories throws the spotlight on the incredible work and relatable homelives of some of the NHS’s 60,000 most vital staff – the young nurses on the frontline of A+E.  

Taking up residency at Northwick Park Hospital in Northwest London, we go inside one of the UK’s busiest Emergency Departments, whose young nurses are on hand to tell the down and dirty truth about life on AND off the ward.  

Hard work, true grit and a lot of laughs - these are determined young people who dive-in and thrive in a workplace most of us hope we never have to go to.  An observational documentary series for ITV2 – ten episodes of blue light dramas, interspersed with sneak-peeks into their home lives and backstories.  Our cast of 15 Nurses and Healthcare Assistants are ready to roll up their sleeves and smash up the stereotypes of nursing: this is not bedside manner and fluffing pillows... it’s young, highly skilled professionals jumping to action and saving lives.        

We get to know our cast of nurses as friends over the ten parts, and watch some of the biggest moments of their lives unfold: origin stories with love and loss, life-changing career progression and even a wedding!!    

Juxtaposing the darkness of loss with the adrenaline rush of saving lives “Emergency Nurses: A+E Stories” celebrates young, fun-loving people excelling in their chosen profession of nursing – a cast of exceptional nurses who also know how to let loose when they’re not on shift.   

EPISODE ONE 

Bride-to-be Ellie and BFF &Maid of Honour, Nikita are working the nightshift in Resus. The hot topic between treating patients is Ellie’s upcoming Hen Do…Nikita is in charge and a bottomless brunch and a strip-club are on the agenda.  Well?  It is a hen-do after all? 

Both senior nurses are poised to take on the most critically ill patients, so when the red phone rings to call through a cardiac arrest,  hen do talk is off the table, and they prep for  the most serious emergency that the department has to face.  

Ellie and Nikita’s friendship off the ward gives a them a shorthand in these tense situations.  A patient’s life is about to be in their hands and they have 6 minutes to find a bed, prep a resus bay and be standing by, ready to try and save the patient’s life.  Emergency Nurses are adrenaline junkies and nothing compares to dealing with a heart that has stopped beating. This opening story to the series demonstrates the major highs and lows of being a nurse in A+E. 

Ellie’s next patient arrives in an ambulance after falling from a ladder. 36 year old Nitin has has a badly damaged  wrist and Ellie will need to help him through the most excruciating of procedures. 

The next time we see Ellie & Nikita, they’re joined by Nurses Heather, Ruth and Kevin and their full-on week at work fades into the background as champers and naked men provide a wonderful distraction.  A post-covid party to remember, where all the nurses can let their hair down and celebrate Ellie’s last night of freedom.

In tonight’s show, comedians Ninia Benjamin and Fatiha El-Ghorri and Happy Mondays legend Shaun Ryder share their most embarrassing stories of their teenage lives with host Rhod Gilbert. Who will win the coveted title of Most Embarrassing Teenager – will it be Shaun Ryder and his supernatural interest in UFOs? Will it be Ninia Benjamin and her love for 1980s Grange Hill? Or will it be Faitha El-Ghorri and her mortifying story involving a bathroom accident on a school trip? In a bid to get their stories into Rhod’s Memory Box of Shame, they divulge their strangest obsessions, reveal some outrageous teenage photographs and share their Mixtapes from Hell, in which they have each chosen the music, TV shows and films that confused, embarrassed and shamed them as teenagers.

Rhod mops up any further embarrassment with a quick-fire quiz, in which some of the most shameful and ridiculous stories are teased out of our guests. And in a surprise for the guests, Rhod has spoken to friends and family who knew them as teenagers to hand over some mortifying morsels they would probably rather he hadn’t got hold of.  At the end of the episode, one guest is awarded the Most Embarrassing Teenage trophy and they are all given a chance to tell their teenage selves some sound advice with the benefit hindsight.

The Repair Shop

Today in The Repair Shop, Jay Blades and the team bring four treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life. 

First to arrive at the barn is Heather McPherson, with her twelve-year-old grandson Jacob. They have brought their kitchen table that’s on its last legs and they are hoping wood restorer Will Kirk can bring it back from the brink. Originally Heather’s great grandmother’s, the pine table with a folding top and gate legs, is extremely important to them both. Generations of their family have gathered round it for meals – it’s been privy to many a discussion and been ever present through good times and bad. For Jacob, who lost his dad suddenly when he was just six years old, the table holds precious memories of playing with his dad at the table and eating family roasts dinners together. When he sits at it even now, he has the feeling that his dad is with him still. However, the tabletop is so warped and split that it’s really no longer fit for purpose. Will goes to great lengths to mend the original pieces of pine, rather than find replacements, and deliver the table back to Jacob and Heather ready to host many, many more roast chicken family dinners.

Next is a first for Master Cobbler Dean Westmoreland, when Grant Harvey and his mum Tracey deliver a pair of enormous clown shoes! They were once the possession of Grant’s Great Uncle Bert, who worked in a car factory by day and by night toured the working men’s clubs and children’s parties as a clown. He delighted in making people laugh, in his red nose and very big shoes and did it for most of his adult life. Both Grant and Tracey loved him dearly and feel the flattened, faded and scuffed leather shoes should be restored to preserve this funny man’s memory.

Expert David Burville is excited to take receipt of a Victorian diorama carefully transported by its proud owners, Sue and John Cox. The three-dimensional model of a horse racing scene, complete with hundreds of little spectators and racehorses, is made entirely of cardboard and wood and encased in a display box. Although never confirmed, John believes it was made by his grandfather in the early 1900s and it was his father George’s pride and joy. It resided in the flat above the family’s butcher shop in Isleworth. Unfortunately, it was damaged over fifty years ago, and the culprit was a nine year old John, whilst doing a bit of target practise with metal turkey skewers! Many of the delicate structures were impaled and detached and it’s continued to crumble over the decades. A repentant John would be very grateful if David would rescue it. It’s a painstaking task to repair each figure and fully restore the diorama but if anyone can…. it’s David Burville.

Finally, Tom Rollason comes to see the bear ladies with a lifelong friend, Blue Bear. Blue Bear was given to Tom when he was a new-born baby by his mum. Tom was born prematurely and spent many weeks in an incubator with Blue Bear to keep him company. The bear represents the close bond that Tom and his mum still have but he’s looking a little worn, his nose is gone, he’s missing an eye too and l really do with some rejuvenating TLC from Amanda and Julie.

Trucking Heavy

Trucking Heavy is an observational documentary series following the work of Allelys, who are one of the leading multimodal logistics and specialist projects providers in the country. In this series, we follow their team and the equipment they use as massive objects are moved from A to B against the odds, thanks to ingenious engineering and impressive planning. 

On the south coast, in Shoreham–by-Sea, a crack team of heavy hauliers are gearing up for a record-breaking challenge. A 150-tonne reactor and a 195-tonne transformer need shifting to an electrical substation 40 miles away in Ninfield. Two huge rigs with specially adapted cabs and cleverly adapted trailers have been readied for the journey east. A 19-strong team plus full police escort will support the convoy to ensure the cargo arrives on time and in one piece. For project manager Zac, the mammoth move marks the culmination of months of planning. Tensions run high when it looks as though the convoy might struggle to squeeze through the exit gates before the journey has even begun. 

Once on the open road, things don’t get any simpler. The lorries have to negotiate a series of tight turns, multiple roundabouts and an intricate manoeuvre involving an about-face on the dual carriageway. 

As the sun sets over the south coast, the convoy arrives at the final and most treacherous hurdle of all. In an ambitious feat of engineering, the team attempts to cross a river via a bridge that’s simply not strong enough to take the weight. 

Two hundred miles north, the team is called in on a multi-million-pound move, when a famous bronze statue needs to be transported to Centenary Square in Birmingham city centre. The statue has been cleaned as part of an ambitious restoration project in the city, and it needs to be returned to a special plinth where it will become part of an impressive water feature in time for the Commonwealth Games. 

Driver Spike and crane operator Tom face a huge challenge when wind conditions threaten to cause an unexpected delay to the entire operation.
