The secret work of elite paramedics revealed for the first time

This fast-paced and dramatic new obs-doc series follows the UK’s toughest medics as they take on critical cases in the most lethal places. For the first time ever, the elite paramedics of the Hazardous Area Response Teams (HART) have granted access to their high-adrenaline work and cameras are with them as they enter burning buildings, confront armed criminals and terrorists, brave toxic gas clouds and conduct rescues by abseiling down cliff faces. They put their lives on the line every day. We’ll see their courage and camaraderie as they race to life or death incidents, as well as undertake a training regime that demands skills ranging from nuclear decontamination to controlling high-speed boats. We also spend down time with these big-hearted characters at headquarters and listen in as they reflect on recent call outs. HART regularly trains with the SAS and MI5 and until now, much of its work has been shrouded in secrecy. Unprecedented access, a wide variety of filming techniques and non-stop action will be sure to make Trauma Rescue Squad unmissable viewing.
