Review

With Doctors on its summer break, these absorbing documentaries should go down well with the medically minded. Five moderately well-known celebrities discover how the NHS has changed over the decades.

There are emotional moments, such as when singer Oritsé Williams shares his childhood experiences as carer to his mother, who has MS.

However, we also get a fascinating insight into the workings of modern medicine. In this episode, musician and TV presenter Myleene Klass returns to the wards with her mother, who came from the Philippines in the 1970s to work as a nurse.




Summary

Myleene Klass works with nurses on a ward in Belfast, learning about the health service's hospitals and the invaluable role of staff from overseas, which includes her own mother.
