The High­land Mid­wife

doc­u­men­tary / 8.00pm / C5

if you love ba­bies and One Born Ev­ery minute, C5’s three-part fly-on-the-wall se­ries fol­low­ing mid­wives in the Scot­tish High­lands will no doubt de­liver the goods. Nicely nar­rated by Pam Fer­ris, who did her fair share of de­liv­er­ies as Call the mid­wife’s Sis­ter Evan­gelina, it fol­lows the in­ti­mate re­la­tion­ship be­tween mid­wives, ex­pec­tant par­ents and new­borns, not made easy by the fact that the near­est hospi­tal is of­ten hours away.

In this week’s episode, mid­wife Mor­ven Fioretti dashes to mum Anas­ta­sia Bird for an un­sched­uled home birth. Af­ter 90 min­utes of labour, Olya El­iz­a­beth makes a sur­real ap­pear­ance. It’s blood, sweat and tears, in the best pos­si­ble way.
