BBC and Netflix have teamed up to create a new project that will be available on Netflix worldwide in December 2020. The Surgeon’s Cut is a four-part limited docu-series. Here’s what you need to know.

According to the BBC press release, this show will be a limited four-part docu-series produced by The Science Unit and BBC Studios.

James Van der Pool from BBC Studios said: “Bringing the combined power of Netflix and BBC Studios’ Science Unit together for the first time, The Surgeon’s Cut is a profoundly touching insight into surgery in the 21stcentury.”

There will be four episodes total on Netflix, in every region (including the United Kingdom) starting December 9, 2020.

  • Episode 1: ‘Saving Life Before Birth’ is directed by James Newton and looks into Professor Kypros Nicolaides who works at the King’s College Hospital in London.
  • Episode 2: ‘Sacred Brain’ is directed by Lucy Blakstad and follows Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa who works in Jacksonville, Florida.
  • Episode 3: ‘Living Donor’ is directed by Sophie Robinson and follows Dr. Nancy Ascher who works in the University of California San Fransisco specializing in organ transplants.
  • Finally, episode 4: ‘Heart & Soul’ will look into Dr. Devi Shetty who works at one of the largest medical centers in the world in India. Stephen Cooter directed this episode.

By our count, it’s the second major BBC title to come to Netflix in 2020 with the co-production with Netflix, Giri/Haji arriving in January 2020. In recent years, Netflix and BBC worked less as the BBC prioritises its own projects. This is a trend that many networks are adopting.

The Surgeon’s Cut joins several other titles from the genre including Lenox Hill which released to rave reviews earlier in the year. Diagnosis, which is also available from The New York Times, is another worth-while series.
