Reality TV strengthens focus on true stories

MUMBAI: Reality TV will air shows on real people with true stories this month.

The line up includes Daring Capers, Patient Files, Campus Vets, Dr G and Exhibit A.

Patient Files is a dramatic documentary series that explores the world of an emerging generation of medical pioneers and their patients. The stories are set in North America's renowned Sunnybrook & Women's College Hospital, one of the first hospitals in the world geared towards the research and treatment of women's health.

Each episode will feature patients as they make critical journeys from illness to recovery - all at the hands of courageous and compassionate medical teams dedicated to women's medicine. It will portray the challenges patients and medical professionals face in receiving and delivering care differently.

The series will draw audiences into the dramatic stories of women facing everything from cardiovascular disease to cervical cancer; from high-risk pregnancy to facial reconstruction and more.

Campus Vets continues to tell the dramatic stories of student veterinarians at one of the most renowned veterinary schools in North America, the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan.

Exhibit 'A' combines documentary truth with the emotional power of dramatic recreation. It takes a look into forensic science and how it is used to solve crimes that might otherwise remain unsolved. It's the science with the power to put suspects behind bars or to set them free.

Each programme follows real detectives and forensic scientists as they unravel the mysteries of a criminal case. The show explores the science of crime including the biology of DNA, the toxicology of poisons, the entomology of bugs, the anthropological analysis of bones and the behavioural and geographic profiling of criminal activity.

The channel will also air Medical Miracle Day. Programmes like Conjoined at the Head, Medical Miracles, No Arms Needed, Miracle Steps, Joined for Life and Born Against The Odds will be featured.
