Hospital reveals the extraordinary dilemmas faced by the consultants, surgeons and bed managers of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, all of which have profound consequences for the patients in their care.
Standing in their way are limited resources, an ever-increasing number of patients and a clock that never stops ticking.
Hospital is the result of a phenomenal team effort. The series producers are Gilly Greenslade and Tom Currie, the series editor (series one) is Graeme McAulay, and the production managers are Letisha Kidza (series one) and Anna Gordon and Lucy Yudt (series two). Our co-execs are Helen Littleboy and Jackie Waldock (series one and two respectively).
We’d like to thank all the brilliant producers, directors and editors that worked on the series, as well as our fantastic commissioning editor Danny Horan, his colleagues at The Open University who co-funded the programmes, and of course all the patients and staff at Imperial.
- Nominee, Best Fixed Rig Series, Televisual Bulldog Awards 2017
- 11x60 Channel 4
- Series one from Tuesday July 12 2016
- Series two coming soon
The first series we created together, from an original idea by Lorraine, and a good example of our trademark "make 'em laugh make 'em cry" approach to formatted documentary.
The Job Interview takes the fixed-rig approach Simon first used in 2007 for The Family to another level. It uses multiple cameras to reveal in detail for the first time the terror and triumph of real-life interviews, highlighting every nuance from initial handshake to potentially life-changing job offer.
It's been a challenging show to make, as instead of being able to "cast" the contributors as we would in a regular documentary, we were entirely reliant upon the individuals who replied to the real-life job advertisements, and whose skills and experience made them, in the opinion of an independent recruitment adviser, suitable candidates for interview.
We made a pilot of this show at the tail end of 2015 and we were delighted when the C4 docs team of Nick Mirksy, Madonna Benjamin and Alisa Pomeroy greenlit a full series. It's been great working with them on the show as they are very supportive and add lots of value.
The senior team on this series is Anshu Ahuja, Genna Gibson and Warren Smith.
We'd also like to thank all the bosses and real-life jobseekers who took part.
