Abstract

Fly-on-the-wall medical documentary programmes are becoming increasingly popular. In fact, they have become a mainstream televisual phenomenon. When things go well, it can be a valuable way of conveying key messages to viewers, for instance on the importance of a variety of public health measures. It can also be a positive way to portray the dedicated work of NHS staff, increase trust between the public and the medical profession, and importantly also show the complexity of healthcare and the real-life challenges that are faced. The article outlines some of the key areas to think about before engaging.
