EALING Hospital has had its share of drama, but it is letting film and TV shows take centre stage with a small exhibition in its upstairs Galleria.

The hospital has been a popular backdrop for film-makers since it opened in 1979.

LNWH Charity has funded the first of four mini exhibitions to use the upstairs space. Shows filmed at the hospital include Top Boy, McMafia, This is Going To Hurt and The Exotic Marigold Hotel

Scenes from the early seasons of Silent Witness were filmed in and around the mortuary, while super agent Jack Bauer came to the rescue when terrorists blew it up in the long-running series 24.
