Product Description

One of the major success stories of ITV children s programming, this BAFTA Award-winning show ran for over a decade and detailed the trials and tribulations of staff and patients at a children s ward in a busy hospital. Co-written by award-winning writers Paul Abbott (Shameless) and Kay Mellor (The Chase), the series pulled no punches and was loved by adults and children alike for its realistic portrayal of mature themes in a sensitive manner. This complete second series sees the return of former anorexia sufferer Keely - this time, not as a patient. The arrival of a young stabbing victim, Matthew, also brings gang rivalries onto the children s ward, and newcomer Nurse Mitchell proves a formidable presence for the established staff and patients of South Park General.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it time...... 19 Nov 2011
By Jon
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Warning - Spoilers!

Long story short; the series takes a while to get going. Give it time though and by episode 3/4 you will be hooked!

The series centers around the relationship between Matthew and Lisa, members of rival gangs who end up falling in love.

The series fanale is superb, and fans of series 1 are sure to also like this series.

Bring on Series 3!

5.0 out of 5 stars Series 2 - Fantastic Classic Children's TV 4 Dec 2011
By MsMoose
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Continues where series 1 finishes, some of the original staff are missing but Dr Woods, Mags, Diane and Student Nurse Gary are back (Gary's nursing skills seem to have improved!).

Keely is no longer the patient, but makes a discovery, which tests her patience in the relationship she is still having with ex-patient Billy. Dawn is terrified of an operation to remove her spleen, how will the patients and staff cope when things do not go to plan!

It's hard to think that it is 20 years since I use to come home from school, tape this (on those things we had called video recorders) so I could continually re-watch it, I surprised myself by actually remembering some of the lines word for word in this series! I was 12 when this was screen on TV! It is classic children's TV, filmed in and around my local Bolton Hospital, (the opening picture of the front of the hospital has in fact just been knocked down to make way for a new car park!).

I had to laugh at some of the conditions being treated on the ward, these days you would be lucky to get an overnight bed for tonsillitis let alone a three / four week stay for something like psoriasis (Lisa). Still it is good to reminisce about the old days and this was one of my favourite TV shows when I was a kid. However I do note the copying of the original to DVD is not perfect, but then I suppose it is difficult to salvage things from the pre digital age.

This series deals with many serious issues including gang warfare, stabbings, suicide, death, and teen pregnancy!

It's interesting and exciting to follow what happens with the children on the ward.
Also it brings back memories of my youth. I was a language student in Jersey and watched Children's Ward on television.
