THE FRAGILE HEART

Trailer

Created by Paula Milne (the award-winning series The Politician's Wife), this BAFTA award-winning series stars Nigel Hawthorne (The Madness of King George) as a cardiac surgeon at the height of his career facing a professional and personal crisis: how to heal others - and himself. He plays Edgar Pascoe, a man seemingly in control of his life who finds his world beginning to cataclysmically fall apart during a visit to China. Heading a top-flight medical delegation with a view to exploiting the possibilities of telemedicine and globalization, he is asked to perform a convert cardiac operation on a high-ranking Communist Minister. Confronted by an ethical dilemma over the abuse of human rights, Edgar is forced into a painful moral awakening which proves to affect every area of his life. The series also stars Dearbhla Molloy (Coronation Street, Casualty), Helen McCrory (The Queen, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2) and Dominic Mafham (Ophelia). (3 EPS, 1996)
