The work of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance dealing with life or death emergencies will be featured in TV from Monday.

Helicopter ER will be broadcast on UKTV’s reality channel Really at 10pm on Monday nights for 12 weeks, starting on September 26.

The programmes follow the flying doctors and paramedics of the rapid response emergency charity, who cover five million acres of Yorkshire’s rugged landscapes, dramatic dales and bleak moors.

The first episode features the dramatic rescue of a man trapped under a tractor that has plunged off a bridge and is in danger of sinking, a motorcyclist who suffers serious injuries after hitting a deer and a farmer who has been attacked by his own bulls.

Other stories also include a woman who has to be anaesthetised by the road after collapsing with a bleed on the brain and a cyclist who suffers serious head injuries after a bike ride with her daughter goes horribly wrong.

The new series is being made by many of the team behind the popular BBC programme Helicopter Heroes, who have again been flying with Yorkshire pilots, paramedics and doctors for the new show.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) serves 5million people across Yorkshire and carries out over 1,250 missions every year. The charity needs to raise £12,000 every day and are currently replacing their two ageing aircraft with brand new, state-of-the-art Airbus H145 helicopters.
