TV: Y is for...

Your Life in Their Hands

SOFTLY-SPOKEN SURGEONS inform patients of the intricacies of kidney stone removal before performing the necessary operation and inviting the patient to come back and talk about how they’re feeling four months later. All on camera. Viewers claim to “prefer suicide” than submit to such an ordeal themselves. British Medical Association spokespeople bluster about scaremongering. Ordinary doctors profess pleasure in seeing things being told as they are. Patients profess incredulity at all the fuss and express wish for “a cup of sweet tea”.

    I remember the episode about a spine-shaving operation necessitated me having to leave the room.
