    The first season of Casualty attracted a lot of political controversy and government condemnation because it "dared" to be critical of hospital conditions and the chronic under-funding of the National Health Service. Also the Royal College of Nursing did not like the way that some of the nurses were portrayed. Despite these initial concerns, a second season of episodes was made, partly because the scripts had already been paid for, though initially it was thought that no more would be made after that. Now, twenty years later, Casualty has become a national institution and is the longest-running BBC drama programme and the second-longest-running medical drama in the world behind America's General Hospital.

    At the time of Casualty's conception, the BBC had two ideas for a hospital drama - a 'cottage hospital' idea, which was seen as the safe option, or an A&E department ('Front Line' - as Casualty was originally titled), an off-the-wall idea which posed more problems for the team. "I went for Casualty," said Jonathan Powell, BBC Head of Drama, about his decision, "because there was a feeling of life and passion and, well, I was anxious for new young people to create something. I put them [creators Jeremy Brock and Paul Unwin] with a very experienced producer, Geraint Morris, and hoped for the best."

    Until production of Casualty moved from Bristol to Cardiff in 2011, a common filming location for high-speed car accidents was the "Road to Nowhere" in Yate, just north of Bristol. This is a short length of dual-carriageway road between Rodford Way and Badminton Road, part of a planned bypass around Yate, which was started in the 1970s but was never completed. Consequently it is unused by traffic and is therefore safe for dangerous stunts, but looks like a proper road.
