From the antiseptic routine of the wards to the thrill of a roadside rescue, we can't seem to get enough of medical documentaries – as new series An Hour to Save Your Life attests

A 31-year-old male has been "bulls-eyed" by a car and we're in the air ambulance, flying out from the Royal London hospital to a suburban street, where the man lies in a twisted, bloodied heap with his feet pointing in what even a layman would identify as the wrong direction.
