Simply Media Release 'Angel's' Series 1 (BBC)) On DVD
Angels, the popular BBC prime-time drama series about student nurses in a London hospital, ran from 1975 to 1983. Simply Media release Series 1 in March 2013.
London (I-Newswire) February 7, 2013 - Angels, the popular BBC prime-time drama series about student nurses in a London hospital, ran from mid seventies to early eighties. The series began as a 50-minute drama series but changed to two half-hour episodes a week in 1979.
Created by Paula Milne, the series chronicled the personal and professional lives of six student nurses, and controversially, tackled issues such as contraception, alcoholism and promiscuity as part of the nurses’ lives.
Grittily authentic each actress taking a part was required to work on a real hospital ward to gain experience and thus contribute to the realism of the production.
With its winning combination of the soap opera-like personal lives of the young nurses and the often starkly detailed and harrowing medical aspects of its drama, Angels was a slickly produced series that can now be seriously regarded as the all important bridge between the gentler medical series of the 1960s such as Emergency Ward 10 and the intense, harder edged offering of today such as Casualty and A&E.
The First Series stars: Fiona Fullerton, Lesley Dunlop, Julie Dawn Cole, Angela Bruce, Pauline Quirke et al. All of which went on to have successful TV careers.
Producer Julia Smith and script editor Tony Holland went on to create EastEnders.
‘There are a lot of tensions in a young nurse’s life; it’s no wonder some turn to drink. When you’re eighteen you’ve got a lot of growing up to do’ – Julia Smith, Series Producer.
