Casualty is the longest running emergency medical drama series of all time; the acclaimed BBC drama remaining a viewing staple in countries around the world.

Holby City General Hospital Accident and Emergency is a hectic, chaotic whirl of hospital staff, patients and visitors entangled in life and death scenarios. But as dedicated medical staff battle to save lives, they also struggle against bungling bureaucracy and a substandard working environment.

The ground-breaking first series, which caused controversy for its veiled attacks on the Thatcher government in the mid-1980s, focuses on ten overworked, underpaid night shift staff who, despite budgetary cuts and hostility from both patients and management, battle to keep the accident and emergency ward running.

Casualty has continued to air for over 20 years and won a BAFTA in 2007 for best drama series. All fifteen digitally remastered episodes from the First Series are now presented in one compelling DVD collection.
