‘The Operation: Surgery Live’ will be shown on Channel 4 on four consecutive nights from 25 May to 28 May. The series is being made by Windfall Films in association with Wellcome Collection. It aims to offer a unique insight into modern surgery by allowing viewers to interact with the operating theatre as the operations are carried out.
To provide context for the series, Windfall Films have worked with the Wellcome Library to produce a History of Surgery Timeline, illustrating surgical techniques and practices from the Neolithic period to the present day.
More information on the series is available through the Wellcome Trust’s website.
