  • ER Live. Watch through the eyes of a documentary crew that films the hectic lives of doctors and nurses.

    This was the only episode of ER to be aired live. Throughout the episode, Dr. Greene and other staff members are followed around by a documentary crew. We see events unfold through the camera. Dr. Greene is still coping with the trauma of his attack months ago. When the camera crew find out about it, they ask about it, but Greene refuses. Carter is now an Emergency Medicine intern and a little sore about having to be an intern again. Ross and Hathaway are dating again, but keep it a secret from the rest of the staff. David Morgenstern, Chief of Emergency Medicine, suffers a heart attack. The way the staff responds to this shows how much he is cared for and respected. Also, British surgeon Dr. Elizabeth Corday makes her debut. For a change, we get to see how the characters in the ER would respond if they were really behind the camera.
