... of documentary. A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals. Matters of Life and Death A whole ward lies empty and intensive care cots are stacked in a closed room.
Meanwhile 15 desperately-ill babies have been turned away in one month from Guy's famed Evelina Children's Hospital.
