Each episode will follow three emergencies attended by the air ambulance, from dispatch to arrival at hospital.
A spokeswoman for the charity said the series had been the BBC’s idea. “It will show how our work fits in with the emergency services, and will also highlight the fact that we are a charity and are not funded by government or the NHS,” she said.
She added that it would be nice if the series resulted in more donations, particularly because the charity had recently bought its second helicopter.
The series will be broadcast every weekday at 9.15am on BBC1 from 3 September for two weeks and will be repeated at a later date.
