Airdate: One Born Every Minute

SBS airs the BAFTA-winning factual which takes a bustling maternity hospital and fills it with forty cameras.

SBS will air One Born Every Minute, the BAFTA winner for Best Factual Series 2010.

The series celebrates what it really feels like to become a parent, by taking a bustling maternity hospital and filling it with forty cameras.

Every minute of every hour of every day, a baby is born in Britain. Better than a soap or drama series, this is the real drama of every day life. One Born Every Minute is a ground breaking eight-part observational documentary series that captures the dramatic, emotional and often funny moments that accompany bringing new life into the world.

40 unobtrusive cameras were placed in a bustling maternity ward in Princess Anne hospital in Southampton, UK. Over four months the cameras captured the highs and lows behind the scenes as new lives begin and others change forever.

One Born Every Minute takes a tender look at pregnancy and birth from the perspective of the soon-to-be parents and family, as well as the hospital staff. For the staff of the maternity ward these life changing events are business as usual and they are always on hand to manage emotions and offer guidance through the intense and often precarious times.

Filming from the reception desk to the neo-natal ward; from the operating theatre to the birthing pool, this award-winning series captures those dramatic, tender and heart-warming moments shared between families – whether a mother of four or a first time pregnancy, and dispels the mysteries of childbirth.

It begins Tuesday 27th July at 8.30pm on SBS ONE.
