Out­back ER

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Thurs­day, ABC, 8pm

Hav­ing to make a trip to the emer­gency depart­ment is not some­thing any­one plans on but, if you live in a cap­i­tal city, the time and ef­fort it takes to get there is hardly the big­gest hur­dle. Spare a thought then for our coun­try’s out­back cit­i­zens, who are the sub­ject of this eye-open­ing doc­u­men­tary se­ries. Set in and around re­mote Bro­ken Hill, Out­back ER takes a look at one of the most un­usual emer­gency de­part­ments in the coun­try. Med­i­cal re­sponse teams in this iso­lated part of the coun­try don’t have time to mess about: they are chal­lenged with snakebites, heart at­tacks, farm ac­ci­dents and no-non­sense pa­tients who’d rather ig­nore the prob­lem. Fas­ci­nat­ing view­ing.
