Children's Ward
21 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In my childhood days, and whenever it was repeated this used to be my favourite programme based in a hospital (especially for a kids programme). A lot of doctors and nurses in a ward looking after suffering a dieing children. The children before they are rescued have some very nasty accidents, e.g. falling off fast spinning roundabouts, nearly drowning, in an explosion and many more. The kids themselves were very good, there was even a kid who did a hospital radio station for the other kids. There were some other good characters as well, e.g. the small shop manager who loved pies. There was also two trouble making kids in the ward that used to set traps, scam and cause mayhem for the other kids. But anyway, this was a very good show when it was on. It won the BAFTA Children's Award for Best Drama, and was nominated for Best Drama, Best Children's Programme (Fiction/Entertainment) and Best Children's Programme (Fiction). Very good!
