News Casualty One Shot 30th Anniversary Special Published 2 years ago on April 5, 2017 Having been on air since 6 September 1986 and cemented it’s place as Britain’s longest running peak time medical drama, Casualty is celebrating the end of it’s thirtieth season on air with a special “one-shot” episode filmed in a single take and taking place in real time. The episode is called One and will air this summer on BBC One. Written by Paul Unwin, the original co-creator of the series (along with Jeremy Brock), this extraordinary episode will cover an hour in the famous emergency department and incorporate all our well-loved series regulars. The story will centre on Duffy mentoring two teenage girls, Chloe and Diamond, who are being shown around the department for work experience. Casualty viewers will be taken on a journey to observe the daily highs and the lows of the hospital, and how despite numerous obstacles, the medical staff remain dedicated and passionate about saving patients’ lives. To create this ambitious episode, the mobile camera covering A&E will be required to be cable free and will also have to cover action from inside a moving ambulance. With 360 degree shots, a number of rooms in the Casualty Ambulance Station have been converted into control rooms for the crew. The sound will be achieved with 40 hidden radio microphones and five boom operators, disguised as part of the set. Cathy Shipton (Nurse Lisa Duffin) says: “It is so exciting and nerve-wracking to be working on this episode and unlike anything any of us cast or crew have ever attempted before. It is a brilliant fly on the wall episode in real time, placing nurses central in the storyline. It will become a classic Casualty.” Simon Harper, Acting Executive Producer for Casualty and Holby City, says: “It’s thrilling to have Paul, as the co-creator of Casualty, conclude our 30th Anniversary series with this unique episode whose exciting concept is a first for the show.” Erika Hossington, Series Producer, Casualty, says: “This very special episode will give the audience a unique insight into an hour in A&E. It will be an intense, emotional hour where staff and patients are faced with life changing events. We want to reflect the front line in its unedited, rawest form, and this one shot episode with a brilliant script from Casualty creator Paul Unwin, has given us the opportunity to do that.” Casualty is made by BBC Studios for BBC One and is filmed at Roath Lock Studios, Cardiff. Jon Sen (Casualty, Holby City, Waterloo Road) will direct.
