The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Watch This -

THE Africa Mercy, a ship filled with vol­un­teer med­i­cal staff, has sailed to the tiny West African na­tion of Benin to of­fer life­sav­ing surgery to peo­ple who can­not get it any other way. In tonight’s triple episode, the screen­ing team heads up-coun­try to bring their skills to re­mote ar­eas. Sur­geons aim to help a young girl with ex­tremely bent legs caused by mal­nu­tri­tion, and a mother-of-three who un­der­goes a nine-hour pro­ce­dure to have a tu­mour re­moved from her neck. There is also an Ebola scare to con­sider. A some­times con­fronting but ul­ti­mately heart­warm­ing se­ries that shows good in the world.
