This interview with costume designer, Janice Rider, is about the 2004 documentary ‘Casualty Saved My Life’. The programme told the stories of viewers who used information they’d learnt from the medical drama ‘Casualty’, and put it into practice, saving the life of themselves or others. The documentary used first hand testimony, reconstructions, clips and behind the scenes footage from ‘Casualty’.
Janice worked on the reconstruction of a motorcycle crash, which resulted in the rider losing his leg.
The directors on the documentary were Mark Scott and Paul Vanezis, the researchers Sophia Wollschlager and Caroline Ossowaskia. Sarah Costigan and Jo Gray were the production assistants, and I was the producer.
