Cornwall Air 999

A ten-part series for Discovery following a team of helicopter medics

Episode One

Following the critical care paramedics of the Cornwall Air Ambulance during their busy holiday seasons and is narrated by Dawn French.

Now in its second series for Discovery, this show aims 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.

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.
