Anaesthetist on starring in Helicopter Heroes Down Under

They are known as the flying doctors - medics in Australia who use helicopters to get to emergencies because the nearest hospital can be up to 200 miles away.

Now more and more British doctors want to do it too.

Dr Hilary Eason has just returned from a year doing the job in Sydney, and is featured in the new BBC series Helicopter Heroes Down Under.

She talks to BBC Breakfast's Bill Turnbull and Naga Munchetty about the experience.
