CASUALTY has entered the new Guinness World Records 2011 book as the longest-running primetime medical drama.
The BBC’s CASUALTY has been recognised as both the longest-primetime medical drama as well as the longest running emergency medical drama in TV history.
With over 700 episodes of CASUALTY broadcast since it began in 1986, it has far surpassed other medical dramas around the world including US favourites ER, Grey’s Anatomy and House.
Belinda Cambell, exeutive producer for CASUALTY, said: “It is an absolute thrill to be able to call CASUALTY the world’s longest running primetime hospital drama. It’s a great testament to the hard work and expertise of the casts and crews over the years that CASUALTY is now in its 25th year and still in fantastically good health”.
