With this series we wanted to make the audience feel like they’re right alongside the heli medics as they travel to and care for patients in their most critical moments.
To do this, we had a camera person on board the helicopter throughout the busy, beautiful Cornish summer, rigged it with cameras and the medics kindly agreed to wear body cams.
We also wanted the audience to get to know the crew so we included ‘master’ interviews of them talking us through each emergency situation.
And lastly, Cornwall is perhaps the biggest hero of the series. We commissioned air to air, drone and ground shots so the beautiful and dramatic atmosphere of the landscape came across on screen.
