The first cut is the deep­est

Inside Soap - - INSIDE TV -

Over the next three nights, Chan­nel 5 part­ners up with St Bartholomew’s Hos­pi­tal in east Lon­don to broad­cast three op­er­a­tions per­formed by lead­ing sur­geons, and we’re promised that the cov­er­age will be “up close, stripped back, live and un­cut” (though that last word feels like a poor choice in these cir­cum­stances, doesn’t it?). The se­ries be­gins with an aor­tic valve re­place­ment – that’s open heart surgery, to us mere mor­tals – and there’s a knee re­place­ment booked in for to­mor­row, with a hemi­colec­tomy (re­mov­ing tu­mours from the bowel) sched­uled for Thurs­day. Brace your­selves, eh?
