ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- I decided that we need to look to the future.

The maternity home needs its own incubator.

I'm launching a fundraising drive.

And the first event is going to be

a dance called The Ballroom of Hope.

- Are you booking the Hammersmith Palais?

- No, the institute.

Eat our eggs.

(light instrumental music)

- Sister Hilda, there's a new patient on the district round.

Julie Schroder, 43 Manton Road.

Age 17.

She's just been discharged from St. Cuthburt's

after treatment for Hodgkin's Disease.

- Hodgkin's.

Poor lamb.

- 17 is awfully young to be fighting cancer.

- Sadly there's now nothing more

can be done for her in terms of treatment.

But she has some burns following her radiotherapy

and we can help with dressings.

- Sister Julienne,

there's something Nurse Dyer and I need to discuss with you.

(light instrumental music)
