TEN will screen a new UK observational series, Ambulance, next month.
This is a 2016 BBC series following the London Ambulance service. Season 1 was narrated by Death in Paradise star Kris Marshall but comprised just 3 episodes. Season 2 in 2017 was narrated by Christopher Eccleston, running for 4 eps.
Network Ten is thrilled to announce the arrival of the outstanding new documentary series Ambulance, a fly-on-the-wall insight into the daily efforts of emergency workers in some of the world’s largest and most populous cities, premiering on Saturday 21 April, only on TEN and WIN Network.
From the high-pressure control room to the dedicated crews on the streets, each extraordinary episode will go beyond the flashing lights to provide a gripping and authentic look at the demands and dilemmas faced by first responders.
In the premiere episode of Ambulance, the London Ambulance Service is forced to bump patients down the queue so they can prioritise causalities, deal with time-wasters and cope with the ever-present threat that a major incident is just an emergency call away.
An ordinary day in the world of Ambulance can quickly change from a life saved to a life lost in the space of minutes. For those employed in emergency services, tending to victims of car accidents, overdoses, suicide attempts and cardiac arrests is all part of a day’s work.
Every moment is a matter of life or death. Each call is a desperate race against the clock. Not every call can be answered.
Saturday 21 April on TEN (time is TBA).
