It is being made by many of the team who created Helicopter Heroes, the popular BBC programme which also showcased the work of Yorkshire Air Ambulance and ran for seven series between 2007 and 2014.

York-based Air Television have been commissioned to make 30 episodes of Helicopter ER, flying with the rapid response emergency service to capture the dramatic, life-saving work of the pilots, paramedics and doctors.

Ian Cundall, executive producer, said: “The access is extraordinary, the stories heart-warming and sometimes heart-breaking.”
