Sky News has made new doc, The Last Hospital: 30 Days in Myanmar, a month-long undercover mission at the epicentre of the Myanmar war with Sky News’ chief correspondent, Stuart Ramsay, and crew.

The documentary provides “unprecedented insight into the resilience of Myanmar’s resistance fighters and the hidden horrors they face.”

The Last Hospital: 30 Days in Myanmar goes to the heart of a jungle battleground in one of the most closed off countries in the world and follows a two-year campaign to gain access to the rebels.

From medics desperately working in the jungle by torchlight to avoid risk of attack, to scenes depicting undeniable evidence of war crimes, viewers will witness the harrowing realities of fighting an oppressive military regime from footage that is supporting ongoing investigations into human right’s abuses by the Myanmar government.

Stuart Ramsay, Sky News’ chief correspondent and winner of the Royal Television Society’s TV Journalist of the Year, said: “The civilians of Myanmar are fighting a brutal civil war, one that remains hidden by its government. Following relentless bombing and strategic eradication of medical facilities, this hospital is quite literally the lifeblood of the resistance movement. It’s a stark representation of the plight of the medics, volunteers, and thousands of civilians who risk their lives every day to be part of the resistance movement.”

Jonathan Levy, managing director and executive editor at Sky News, commented: “The journey of Stuart and his team underpins exactly why Sky News continues to invest in eye-witness journalism at a time when others scale back. Our reporters are usually the first and sometimes only team on the ground, dedicated to taking audiences to the heart of a story. Reporting is difficult and often dangerous, but there’s no better way to uncover the truth.”

The Last Hospital: 30 Days in Myanmar will air on Wednesday 20 September at 9pm on Sky Documentaries and on Thursday 21 September at 9pm on Sky News. It will also stream on the Sky News website, App and YouTube channel, available around the world.

The documentary follows a series of special reports from Sky News in July this year, which unveiled how Myanmar has been torn apart by a civil war that has seen thousands of civilians killed by the military regime since it seized power in 2021.
