Friday, 30 May 2014

Popular documentary One Born Every Minute, filmed at Southmead Hospital Bristol, is set to return to television screens on June 11.

Filming of the Channel 4 programme, which captures births on camera, was carried out at the West Country’s busiest maternity unit last autumn. 

The first 10 episodes of the series shot at Southmead Hospital appeared on screens from February 24 until April 28.

But after a short break the documentary show filmed at North Bristol NHS Trust is set to make a return.

The series features mums, dads and staff as new babies are welcomed at the Southmead Hospital unit.

The show is returning to a new Wednesday night slot.

Director of midwifery at North Bristol NHS Trust, Ann Remmers, said: “We are very pleased that the next series of One Born Every Minute filmed at Southmead Hospital will be returning to Channel 4 on June 11.

“The team at Southmead has really enjoyed being part of the popular programme.

“We are very proud about the way every member of the team came across in the first ten episodes of One Born Every Minute showing their caring and professional attitude and skills. We are looking forward to being on screen again in June.”

One Born Every Minute returns to Channel 4 at 9pm on Wednesday, June 11.
