Emergency Ward 10

British TV's first ever medical soap opera, set in the fictional Oxbridge Hospital, was shown twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays. The cast included 21 year-old John Alderton as Dr Moore, and Richard Thorp as Dr Rennie – Thorp is now better known as Emmerdale's Alan Turner. Other doctors and specialists were played by Gabriel Woolfe and Desmond Carrington. Among the patients were Albert Finney, Joanna Lumley & Ian Hendry. The clip is from an episode that caused a stir in the early 60s, in that it contains the first trans-racial kiss ever to be seen on British TV.
