I had to write a post about the bbc 2 storyville programme on sunday evening. concerning the work of henry marsh (he of the architects glasses) a consultant at st george’s hospital in south london. the neurosurgeon who has spent more than 15 years visiting and working with igor petrovich, also a neurosurgeon in the ukraine.
I found the whole 90 minutes compelling viewing, some parts very difficult to watch, more the conversations with patients than the operations. mr marsh is a very interesting man, to see some-one so driven and immersed in the lives of others working to improve things was very uplifting in our media driven world, that so often is concentrated on finding things to discredit or dislike.
