KAMLOOPS - A pregnant mother at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops is part of a documentary series which began airing on CBC last night.

Keeping Canada Alive is a six-part documentary featuring a day in the life of Canada’s health care system, from surgery, child birth, to diagnosis and emergency room care.

Sixty camera crews filmed the series in one day this past May to get an insight into what the healthcare system goes through in a 24-hour period.

Crews set up across nine provinces and the Northwest Territories. Kamoops is one of three B.C. locations featured.

The first episode premiered last night, Oct. 4, and each subsequent episode will air Sunday nights at 9 p.m.

Episode four, set to air on Sunday, Oct. 25, will have the story of a young Kamloops mother, who two years after a heartbreaking stillbirth, faces her fears as she prepares to deliver a baby in the same ward.
