24 Hours in A&E review a measured, moving series that doesnt mess with the formula
This emergency department show is wonderful, allowing stories to unfurl naturally and letting people even stroppy madams keep their dignity

Twenty-four hours, seven days a week, says the receptionist, before putting the phone down and turning to her colleague. I love that question, Whens your opening hours?

So begins the seventh series of 24 Hours in A&E (Channel 4). The scenery has changed, slightly we are now in St Georges emergency department in south-west London rather than Kings College hospital in the south-east but the makers have, refreshingly, had the confidence not to fix something that isnt broken, so the format remains the same. Tales of two major events in this episode, a motorbike rider who has been brought in after a crash with half her leg amputated at the scene and a boy with learning difficulties and severe epilepsy admitted after a massive fit are interspersed with staff talking about their work, and relatives talking about their injured loved ones, while the hospital drama is leavened with scenes of the treatment of someones more minor injury. This week, the latter came courtesy of the marvellously stroppy and ungrateful little madam Tina, who had a sewing needle stuck in her foot and whose mother was on the other end of the phone telling her that she would probably die from an infection if the doctors who would want to hack her to pieces to get it out didnt kill her first. Afterwards, the saintly registrar who deals with her, Mo Tahir, just grins and shrugs. Mothers, he says. They always have the edge on you.

Top 10 budget hotels and B&Bs in Mexico City

Mexico Citys hotels are as characterful as the place itself. From boutique B&Bs to palaces with old-school charm, theres much to explore without busting your budget

Opened in 1907, this design classic recalls the opulence of turn-of-the-20th-century Mexico City. Replete with overstuffed furniture, oil paintings, and stained-glass ceilings, the lobby (which also doubles as a small museum) is remarkably well preserved, as is the adjoining atrium restaurant filled with leafy plants and singing birds. Small, carpeted guestrooms show their age more readily than the common areas, with many boasting furnishings from when the hotel opened. Yet the rooms are well-priced, considering their history and the hotel has a fantastic location in the heart of the Zona Rosa. Though not as upscale as it was, this pretty neighbourhood is central, safe, and a major shopping and nightlife destination.

Lost and exhausted wanderers
South Uist: For many, these island landfalls, far from their intended destination, will prove to be their last

Lately, like many areas of the country, the islands have been repeatedly drenched with rain and blasted by gales. As is sometimes the case, these conditions have affected travel plans as ferry services have been disrupted, despite the best efforts of the operator.

But while humans on the move have merely been delayed by the winds, for some avian travellers, the weather has had far more seriously implications, delivering them to destinations far from those they had intended to reach.
