Episode one: Giving back

An aid worker travels to West Africa in the midst of the Ebola outbreak and is faced with cultural misunderstandings. A doctor flees his war-torn country but returns to care for the community close to his heart.

And we ask junior doctors: what was your most terrifying moment at work?

Episode two: Giving back (part 2)

Standing in a queue behind a famous ENT (ear, nose and throat) surgeon, a community paediatrician asks a question that will lead her to invent something remarkable.

Travelling along the Amazon river, a retired GP from England brings care to the people who need it most.
