It’ll feature a nervous doctor on her first day desperate not to make any mistakes that could put patients at risks suffer after a dramatic turn with her first patient that was completely out of her control. It shows young doctors struggling through 75 hour work weeks, feeling demoralized by funding cuts that leave them severely overstretched and the reality of the conditions doctors work in.
Ken and Me (TV3, 8pm)

How to Live Mortgage Free with Sarah Beeny (Channel 4, 8pm)
Is the secret to this way of life simply being rich and extremely lucky?

However it never hurts to get some new ideas on how to budget and this show will be looking at a number of individuals who have managed to avoid paying a mortgage by building their own homes and living in barges to save themselves paying rent.
