You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Anamorphic Widescreen, Box Set, Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: All ten episodes of the acclaimed historical hospital drama. Featuring true cases, characters and events taken from the London Hospital records, nurse's ward diaries and intimate memoirs, these gritty medical series show the lives - and forbidden romances - of pioneering doctors and nurses a hundred years ago. Run with a will of iron by formidable Matron Eva Luckes, the hospital in London's poverty-stricken East End deals with anything from infectious diseases like syphilis, pneumonia and tuberculosis to shocking injuries of the times such as self-abortion injuries, victims of anarchist bombings and an East End gang member wounded in a shooting. For the volunteer nurses and doctors - including Nurse Russell, Dr Culpin, Nurse Bennett, Dr Walton and the surgeons Hurry Fenwick and cocaine-addicted Dr Dean - work is tough and relentless. Relationships between staff might be strictly forbidden, but romance continues to blossom away from the Matron's gaze. In a time of great change, the hospital constantly faces up to the future. Pioneering radiographers work with the perilous x-ray equipment, chloroform is scandalously introduced as an anaesthetic and the use of revolutionary new electro-mechanical devices are instigated. Equally gritty and heart-warming, these series bring the Edwardian hospital compellingly to life - illuminating the dramas and romances of a fascinating medical era.|
