Episode Cardiac Arrest: You Can't Make an Omelette Without Breaking Legs (1994) was scheduled for broadcast on 12 May 1994 but was postponed for a week as a mark of respect for the Labour Party leader John Smith who had died that morning - coincidentally of a heart attack and cardiac arrest.

Like fine wine
17 April 2002 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This television programme is a black comedy about the goings-on in a British public hospital. Anyone who has worked in a public hospital based on the British-style (ie Commonwealth countries) will recognise the satirical barbs in this programme. Each episode made me laugh, and at the same time say to myself, "tsk, tsk - how naughty of them to put that in".

I'm surprised this comedy didn't last longer, or receive greater recognition. It's a bit like fine wine. If it came out on DVD I would instantly add it to my small, select collection.
