General Hospital

DR LEW GRADE re-opens the ATV medical wing, mothballed since EMERGENCY WARD 10. Lo and behold, everything still present and correct, including manky metal-framed beds, manky janitor with metal mop and pale, manky canteen with brown and orange plastic chairs upon which brown and orange plastic cups of coffee are drunk, and manky patients. Only this time boasting a profusion of facial hair. Harmless fare, ironically, which idled away many a drizzly weekday afternoon. Plenty of heroes and villains to swoon/swing for, including LYNDA BELLINGHAM, TONY ADAMS, LEWIS JONES and JUDY BUXTON.

    Not a bad effort and quite well liked among the daytime audience. It seemed to do very well in the Tyne Tees region who moved it to an evening slot in 1977.

    Not to be confused with the American show of the same name.
