The Ambulance: 8 Minutes to Disaster

About this programme

A month in the life of a Reading ambulance crew trying to comply with government targets to reach 75 per cent of life-threatening call-outs within eight minutes. Using fixed cameras in the vehicles and shoulder-mounted one for the paramedics, the documentary reveals the daily pressures faced by the staff and the difficult decisions they make on a regular basis.
