999: What's Your Emergency? 3/10

9:00pm Monday, September 24 on C4

This powerful new 10-part documentary series reveals how Britain is changing through the eyes of police, fire and ambulance teams on the front line responding to 999 calls. This week’s programme focuses on relationships. When things go wrong, more of us than ever are dialling 999, asking the emergency services to pick up the pieces and protect us from those we used to trust. An increasing number of 999 calls involve relationship disputes, but they’re never easy to resolve. The emergency operators are inundated with petty, non-emergency calls, ranging from people falling out over what they’re watching on telly, to others arguing about computer games and who gets to keep the kitten when they split up.
