A new documentary series that follows the Scottish Trauma Network starts tonight on Channel 4. 

The new show, Rescue: Extreme Medics sees how the Network is able to bring life-saving treatment to remote areas of over 30,000 square miles of land where easy access to hospitals is not possible. 

The first episode will see a trauma team depart from Glasgow by helicopter and travel to a remote part of Skye to help a man trapped under a 650kg all-terrain vehicle. 

Also in the first episode, a 51-year-old cyclist needs urgent attention after a head-on collision with a digger in rural Aberdeenshire.
