WHAT'S YOUR EMERGENCY?
Wednesdays and Thursdays at 23:00 CET from 6th to 21st August
What’s Your Emergency? takes an intimate and astoundingly candid look at the work of the emergency services and the chaotic and concerning situations they face in modern day Great Britain.
Series two sees more of the siren-blaring, blue light action from this fascinating documentary including emergencies related to alcohol misuse, mental health, birthing procedures and the older generation. This is reality: up, close and personal.
TWINS IN PERIL
Sunday 10th August at 08:00, 12:00 and 18:00 CET.
Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome is a dangerous and rare condition caused by unequal blood supplies and affects 10% of twins in the womb. Twins in Peril takes viewers to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Florida where pioneering technology is used to treat this disorder. Using fibre-optic technology and endoscopic cameras, doctors are able to peer inside the womb and, in an effort to save each baby’s life, sever the swollen blood vessels that are directly connecting the twins to each other. Twins in Peril gives viewers the opportunity to go inside the womb alongside the babies who are fighting for survival.
OPERATION REPO (series 2 & 3)
Weekdays DOUBLE BILL at 12:00, 18:00 and 00:00 from 6th August repeated weekends DB at 20:00 CET.
They’re back and they’re still standing! Ready to track down slack owners and their goods in California’s San Fernando Valley, the Operation Repo team will make it their mission to find you - if you can’t flash the cash!
While most would be perturbed by turning themselves into human targets, the team laugh in the face of absurdity and danger! Not even this month’s backyard wrestlers, chaotic clown, gruesome gangsters or feisty doctors can hold them back. Would you be brave enough to take on the raucous repossession challenge?
