    Casualty 1906 is the highly successful pilot for the Casualty 1900s strand.

    Shown on BBC 1, it achieved excellent reviews and audience figures, and set the style for the series that followed. A powerful ‘you are there’ drama that uses case notes, Ward Reports, autopsy records and intimate diaries from 100 years ago to bring actual doctors, nurses and patients at the Royal London Hospital vividly back to life.

    Plunging us into the medical crises in London’s teeming, desperately poor East End the drama delivers a grittily realistic experience of life a hundred years ago. It’s only our grandparents generation yet can be a shocking, foreign world
