  1. 1. MEDICAL DOCUMENTARIES
  2. 2. One born every minute ◦ One born every minute is a British observational documentary series which shows the day to day activity of a labour ward. ◦ The factual series is made by Dragonfly Film and Television Productions, which is part of Shine Group. ◦ The first series won a 2010 BAFTA for best factual series, the second series was nominated for a 2011 BAFTA for best factual series. ◦ Airlock who designed the interactive and multimedia material to accompany the series were nominated for a 2010 BAFTA “New Media Award”.
  3. 3. … ◦ One born every minute is a fixed-camera observational documentary. Channel 4 seem to be showing more fixed camera observational documentaries. The documentary is shot in a hospital in Southampton. ◦ Using a fixed-camera observational style documentary is something that I will not be using in my documentary as mine is not an observational documentary. But this style of documentary seems to be effective for scenes which are located in a building and want to recorded basically 24 hours a day without having to have a camera crew to be there.
  4. 4. 24 hours in A & E ◦ 24 hours in A & E is fully narrated throughout and is a single strand documentary. ◦ The camera is hidden and not an obvious thing, so people act normal and not staged. ◦ Camera shots used are; Long Shot, Close up, Medium close up (when people are having interviews). ◦ Editing- fades from title to start of programme, normal shot to shot. ◦ Sound- Voiceover of the narrator, diegetic sound of machines beeping and doctors talking, patients crying and talking and people on the phone in the background to loved ones.
  5. 5. … ◦ The only graphics used is at the start of the documentary is the title ‘24 hours in A & E’ and this just cut away and moves on to the start of the scene.
