BBC One has commissioned three new factual series in a bid to keep viewers informed, educated and entertained during the coronavirus lockdown period.
Ross Kemp: Britain’s Volunteer Army
These uncertain times have seen the nation come together to help one another, and this generosity and kindness is celebrated in Ross Kemp: Britain’s Volunteer Army.
The five-part series goes up and down the country to meet those volunteering as part of large and small initiatives.
Ross meets the volunteers who are supporting the most vulnerable in society, even if it means putting their own personal safety at risk.
While most people are doing what they can by staying indoors, volunteers are providing support by doing anything from making masks and stitching gowns, to getting essential groceries, to providing mental support through phones calls and transporting patients and life saving equipment.
To show his admiration for what these volunteers are doing, Ross gets involved with volunteering within his own local community.
Saving Our Nurses
Filmed in the crucial weeks before the coronavirus hit the already stretched NHS, Saving Our Nurses, follows the fight back against the nursing crisis.
With over a third of nurses looking for new roles, the five-part series explores a new scheme put forward by an NHS trust to stop nurses from leaving the profession.
The Senior Intern Scheme came from Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust and sees new nurses paired up with "super" nurses who have a lifetime of experience and can help them navigate the most extraordinary of circumstances.
The aim of the scheme is to help new staff through their first year on the wards giving them the skills to cope with the difficult realities of hospital life.
Our Finest Hours
Facing our biggest test since World War Two, it is in our darkest hours we also have our finest hours.
The five-part series will look at the impact coronavirus has had on families, communities and businesses and the way ordinary Brits have fought back with kindness and resilience.
A combination of wartime archive and modern-day news footage will look at how as a nation we responded to times of crisis now and then.
