    I got stuck at a car accident in Wicklow last Friday afternoon and I noticed a camera crew with ambulance personnel talking to the cameras at the scene. Is there a new documentary going to be hitting our screens or was it for something else.

    I also noticed 2 ambulance jeeps and the bike there. Would this have been for the sake of the cameras as the bike certainly would be an unusual sight on the country roads.

    There is something going on along those lines but I don't know the details. Someone I know in rural Wicklow had an ambulance crew at her house a couple of weeks back for her sick father, and was asked if she would consent to them filming (she didn't.)

    Funny you should mention that. Twice today I saw an ambulance followed by an RRV going towards Arklow, the strange thing was there was two passengers in the RRV with the ap and the first thing that came to mind was a camera crew in the RRV, very unusual for them to carry passengers, and two at that.

    The television crews are filming a 'fly on the wall' type of documentary on the National Ambulance. The production has been ongoing for a few months now with recordings taking place in various cities and towns in Ireland, the control room in Dublin is also involved so the public should get a good insight into the daily happenings of the type of calls we respond to. It is envisaged that the series should on television in the first quarter of 2015.
