Cambridge Filmworks Documentary on ITV News
Our new hour long documentary ‘Papworth: A Moving Story’ has featured on the ITV news.
The documentary follows the world renowned Royal Papworth Hospital, one of the largest specialist cardiothoracic (heart and lung) hospitals in the world, as it prepares to move to it’s new home on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
Papworth Hospital treats more than 24,400 inpatients and day cases and sees more than 73,600 outpatients each year from across the UK. Papworth Hospital’s services are internationally recognised and include cardiology, respiratory medicine, sleep medicine, cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery and heart & lung transplantation.
To mark 100 years of this extraordinary institution, this film tells the fascinating story of how the hospital grew from a tuberculosis ‘colony’ to a leading heart and lung hospital, which now performs more heart and lung transplants than any other hospital in the UK. Blending archive footage with contemporary interviews with staff, patients and supporters, Papworth: A Moving Story offers a unique insight into this pioneering hospital as it mark its centenary and looks towards the future.
