|911: The Bronx is a dramatic, high octane documentary series following ER doctors 24/7 in one of New York City's busiest hospitals.
Capturing the action in the world leading trauma center at St Barnabas Hospital in the south Bronx, the six part series uses cutting edge graphics to literally get under the skin of the patients.
This 60 minute programme illustrates just what is going on inside the body during trauma injuries and critical medical conditions and TX on Discovery US. The first 3 Episodes air one after the other on Discovery US from 8.00pm and will run right through to 11.00pm.
The first programme kicks off with Dr John Zambito who helps a patient fight for his life after a four storey fall; Dr Edith Szabo and her team race to save the foot of a 12 year old hit by a car; and Dr Eric Appelbaum deals with a victim of a gun attack.
Over the next 5 episodes, St Barnabas Hospital doctors brings a heart attack victim back from the dead, saves the victim of a savage gang attack, treats a shopkeeper that was shot in the head at blank point range, and fight to save a man who jumped 5 storey's after savagely attacking his girlfriend.
Full post production for this talkbackTHAMES production was completed at blue by, Graeme Hayes, Ronnie Newman and Phitz Hearne. All 6 episodes were post produced by one of blue's senior producers, Nicola Whitehead.
Ronnie Newman says, "We created 6 programmes conformed from HDV tapes. This involved captioning and adding effects to the start & end of parts and smoothing transitions in and out of the 3D graphic sequences .We also had to do a lot of blurring , approximately 200 per 44 minute episode. This included blurring people who had refused consent and some of the more disturbing injuries suffered by the patients."
