Episode One: Walking Free

How could Arnold Schwarzenegger possibly inspire a 12-year-old boy to become one of the world’s great orthopedic surgeons?

A good question, and just one of many intriguing twists in the life of Dr Munjed Al Muderis: A privileged young Iraqi, living in luxury, who defied a dictator and narrowly escaped a bullet in the head; A refugee who arrived here on our shores with nothing. Not even a name – just a number. and now he’s a proud and brilliant Australian … a miracle worker … who has pioneered revolutionary bionic surgery to help people walk again.

 Inside Story Returns  Thursday, February 4, at 7.30pm on Nine

A new season of King’s Cross ER will air at 8:30pm.

In the new series, a homeless man with a history of intravenous drug use is admitted in a critical condition and finding a healthy vein is proving to be a serious problem. With all his veins collapsed from long-term drug use, how will the ER team administer the vital fluids and medicine he needs? 

John finally decides to go to Emergency after falling from his roof two days earlier. The pain and breathlessness he is experiencing put Dr Melinda Berry and her team in a race against time to examine his chest cavity for the problem.

A pair of Scottish backpackers get more than they bargained for when they start hallucinating, but no one can work out what they have taken. When they start talking to the walls of the ER observation bays, doctors must find out what they have ingested so they can reverse the effects.

Drugs and alcohol are a common denominator in Kings Cross, Sydney’s notorious party district, but not the only reason hundreds of patients are admitted to the overworked St Vincent’s Hospital every day. 

Kings Cross ER returns on Thursdays at 8.30pm on Channel Nine.
