Ties That Bind
John and Andrew Cameron’s mutual admiration for surgery, Johns Hopkins—and each other.

When Andrew Cameron was born at Johns Hopkins Hospital 38 years ago, his father, John, was finishing his last year of a Hopkins surgical fellowship. The family lived on campus in a three-bedroom apartment—so cramped that this fourth child slept in a bassinet in the master bedroom closet.

Encore! Encore!
Riding on the success of the miniseries Hopkins 24/7, ABC-TV has wrapped up more dramatic Hopkins footage for a follow-up.

Hopkins, which airs on June 26 at 10 p.m., will run for six weeks in hour-long segments. Viewers will have the chance to observe residents and senior surgeons perform transplants, brain surgery and facial reconstruction. Tempering these triumphs is a delicate end-of-life situation and a surgical intern going through a tough learning curve. Finally, residents and physicians discuss the joys and struggles of their profession and its impact on their personal lives. The documentary’s executive producer Terry Wrong—who considers Hopkins a “national treasure”—says he was struck by the institution’s resilience in facing major technological changes, shifting expectations for residents, a more assertive patient population and the growing financial perils involved in operating a large academic center.
