Medical marvels and rogues’ gallery to beef up Reality TV’s May offerings

Reality TV, the 24-hour entertainment channel that showcases programmes on real people with true stories, has an interesting line up of shows throughout May. The new shows that are on the anvil include ‘Cheaters Season 4’, ‘Daring Capers’, ‘Patient Files’, ‘Campus Vets’, ‘Dr G: Medical Examiner’, ‘Exhibit A’ and ‘Special Events’.

‘Daring Capers’ features a rogues’ gallery of bank robbers, art thieves and debonair con artists who tried to steal their way to wealth through brilliant ploys and slick transactions. ‘Patient Files’ is a documentary series that explores the world of an emerging generation of medical pioneers and their patients. The stories that are set in North America’s renowned Sunnybrook and Women’s College Hospital, will portray the challenges patients and medical professionals face in receiving and delivering care differently. The series will draw audiences into the dramatic stories of women facing everything from cardiovascular disease to cervical cancer; from high-risk pregnancy to facial reconstruction and more.

‘Campus Vets’ brings to light stories of student veterinarians at one of the most renowned veterinary schools in North America, the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon).

Announcing the new shows, Flecka Picardo, Marketing Manager, Reality TV - Asia, said, “It has been Reality TV’s conscious attempt to provide meaningful, real life entertainment filled programmes to our Indian viewers. We are confident that these new programmes will further strengthen the position of the channel in India and will be appreciated by our viewers.”

Viewers will be taken on a behind-the scenes look at the world of science, mystery and justice in ‘Dr G: Medical Examiner’ by one of America’s most respected forensic pathologists, Dr Jan Garavaglia.

‘Exhibit A’ takes a look at forensic science and how it is used to solve crimes that might otherwise remain unsolved. Among the other line-ups in May on Reality TV is ‘Special Events: Medical Miracle Day’, where episodes on ‘Conjoined at the Head’, ‘Medical Miracles’, ‘No Arms Needed’, ‘Miracle Steps’, ‘Joined for Life’ and ‘Born Against The Odds’ will be exclusively featured.
