Here's a link for an excellent programme 'Cutting Edge' which I managed to catch the other night:
Briefly it's about a couple of crews working the same Ambulance, 212 in this case, and doing the rounds in Reading. The normal reality stuff you'd imagine but this really succeeds because there's barely any voice over and the crew just tell it how it is. The majority of the serious jobs they seem to go to get called in to the police first and I did mentally tick off the jobs they were going to and sharing in their cynicism.
Half baked suicide attempt - Check
RTC with uncompliant 'driver' - Check
Male hit in face by 'friend' - Check
Drug addict female in need of another hit - Check
Street drinker unconscious in local park - Check
I loved the sense of tedium they left in, the sense of trying to pass the time in between jobs and using the black humour to do it. I particularly liked the poorly numbered houses and the frustration of trying to rush to a particular address - been there and done it!!
Watch it and enjoy! (Next week I'll tell you which films are on down your local Cinema and review them) ;)
