Summary *Adult Themes*Ebola Frontline features unique raw footage captured by Medecins Sans Frontieres - Doctors Without Borders' (MSF) - staff working in the high risk zone of an Ebola Case Management Centre in Sierra Leone. With specially adapted cameras attached to their goggles, these medical volunteers give viewers a very real sense of what it is like working in the blistering West African heat in a plastic personal protection suit. The medical team's pain and despair is all too clear when they have to separate parents from a sick child and then when that child loses their fight for life. But even in these desperately difficult circumstances the program captures moments of euphoria as patients who have been cured leave the centre.British doctor and MSF volunteer Dr Javid Abdelmoniem gives a unique insight through his video diary charting his work at the clinic. Exclusive, on-the-ground footage also reveals the medical staff's frustrations at the lack of support from the international community and pharmaceutical companies in fighting the virus, which has been responsible for more than 5,000 deaths since the outbreak began.PRODUCTION DETAILS:1 x 45 minutes. Producer/Director Steven Grandison. Executive Producers Karen Edwards & Lucie Kon. A Blakeway production for BBC
