Surgeons: At The Edge of Life Series 2

Banijay Rights

Surgeons: At the Edge of Life features a collection of ground-breaking and complex procedures, including surgery on a disease so rare, it’s thought to be the first time a UK surgeon has ever operated on it.

Going beyond the closed doors of the operating theatres at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, series two follows the experience of surgeons as they tackle high-stakes operations at the forefront of what is medically possible.

Intricate, life-saving procedures are captured in minute detail, punctuated by edge-of-your-seat moments of dazzling skill and courageous decision-making. The complexity of anatomy and the science behind the surgery drive the drama of each story. Powerful interviews with the surgeons reveal the emotion beneath the outwardly calm characters that the rest of us rely on utterly, when we put our lives in their hands.
