For Better or Worse

Jun 26, 2013 on Channel 4 at 9:00 PM


At King's, husbands and wives reflect on their enduring marriages and the changing nature of love, while the A&E staff talk about the wisdom that comes with experience. Scott is the senior nurse in charge of a very busy shift in Resus. All the bed... (more)s are full, a trauma has just arrived and an air ambulance trauma is on its way. Pauline, who's 56, has had a fall at home, hitting her head on a table. She smashed her teeth, but the main concern is injury to her spine and neck. Pauline's propensity for accidents is a constant worry for her husband, John. Soon after, the air ambulance brings in satellite and aerial-fitter David from Sussex. The 62-year-old has fallen 30 feet head-first from a roof. He has life-threatening injuries to his head, chest and abdomen. His wife Pam is being blue-lighted into London by the police. Opera critic John and his wife Gudrun are in minors. John injured his leg on a skiing holiday and has pain in his ankle. They've been together for 48 years and John admits the longevity of their relationship probably comes down to his wife being in charge. Meanwhile, window cleaner Alfred, who still works at the age of 78, has had to come to terms with life without Peggy, his wife of nearly 60 years, who recently died in a nursing home.
