Dragonfly secures new BBC Two commission with Last Chance Clinic
BBC Two has commissioned a three-part series in which some of the UK’s most brilliant medical minds will come together to try and treat the nations’ most extraordinary and complex cases.
Presented by Michael Mosley, Last Chance Clinic, which is being produced by BAFTA-winning production company, Dragonfly TV, will see a team of 12 experts using their collective knowledge to try and transform the lives of people who have suffered, sometimes for years, without a successful diagnosis.
With access to all the latest diagnostic technology, each expert will come from a different specialism and bring their own theories and ideas about the best course of action. Every case will spark a unique investigation, as the team start from scratch and embark on a medical detective mission.
The patients entering the clinic have exhausted every other avenue – and their conditions are having a major impact on their day-to-day lives, with cases ranging from unknown seizures to mystery skin conditions, and unexplained paralysis to sudden loss of vision.
Last Chance Clinic (w/t) a 3×60’ series for BBC Two, is made by Dragonfly TV. Executive Producer for Dragonfly TV is Ros Ponder. It was commissioned by Tom McDonald, Head of Specialist Factual and Natural History Commissioning and Patrick Holland, Controller BBC Two. The Commissioning Editor is Abigail Priddle.
