Episode Summary

EDIT
The Holy Terror
AIRED:
Florence Nightingale heroine of the Crimean War and founder of modern nursing shocked Victorian London by giving up her gay social life to nurse the sick, poor and elderly in institutions so unsanitary and poorly managed that few patients ever recovered. Miss Nightingale's later experiences in the Crimea where, despite deplorable conditions, her nurses reduced the death rate among soldier patients from 42 to 2 percent in four months at the notorious Scutari Hospital. It was during this period that she contracted a fever that invalided her much of her long life and it was her exploits in the Crimea, chronicled by journalism's first war correspondent, William Howard Russell of the London Times, that made her a national heroine.moreless

      • Florence Nightingale: Scutari hospital has taught me how few things are freely given in this world, no matter the worth of the cause. But when the cause is worthy enough, what is needed must be taken. By whatever means!

    • NOTES (1)

      • Julie Harris on her role in "The Holy Terror".

        "They are fascinating women, utterly selfless, totally dedicated to a cause to which they believe they have been called by God."

        The Florence Nightingale role is a demanding one. I must be believable as a teenager as an invalid woman of middle years Miss Nightingale spent much of her later years in bed: she died in 1910 at the age of 90 and in one scene as a bold convalescent, following her near-fatal bout with Crimean fever.
