An exhibition of stills from films and TV series featuring Ealing Hospital is to be held in the upstairs Galleria.

Since it opened in 1979 it has been a popular location for directors for both hospital-based drama and action and adventure films.

It was spectacularly blown up in 24, the series featuring Kiefer Sutherlans as Jack Bauer, who came to the rescue after terrorists struck.

Other shows filmed at the hospital include Top Boy, McMafia, Sweeney This is Going to Hurt and The Exotic Marigold Hotel. Idris Elba turned up in the hospital café while he was there filming an episode of Luther.

Scenes from the early seasons of Silent Witness were filmed in and around the mortuary.

LNWH Charity has funded this mini exhibition which will be the first of four to use the upstairs space.
