Sirens' paramedics had this viewer gripped. Could they please now rescue the female roles?

Teenage Kicks: The Search for Sophistication (BBC4) | iPlayer

Perfume (BBC4) | iPlayer

Tonight Channel 4, home to the excellent fly-on-the-wall documentaries One Born Every Minute and 24 Hours in A&E, girds its comedy loins to push another medical programme on to our screens. This time it's a comedy: Sirens, based on the book , Blood Sweat and Tea (itself based on the blog Random Acts of Reality ) by an emergency medical technician writing under the pseudonym Tom Reynolds
