Reality TV goes into the corridors of John Hopkins and is a follow up to the first series imagedone in  2000, called Hopkins 24/7 in Baltimore.  It is a documentary and not a medical television show, thus there are perhaps some parts that may not be as exciting as a  fictional television show.  The filming crew worked to blend and be as non obtrusive as possible, simply to catch the every day events that occur at Johns Hopkins.  The Hopkins series appears on Thursdays at 10 PM on ABC and begins on June 26th.   image

Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa is in the middle  of removing a tumor from his patient's brain. Someone bumps into a piece of equipment. For a moment, it's unclear whether the sudden movement has harmed the man on the operating table. And it's all caught on tape, as part of a new six-part series produced by ABC News. "Hopkins," a follow-up to the acclaimed "Hopkins 24/7" from 2000, takes viewers inside the renowned hospital in Baltimore. Quiñones-Hinojosa said the presence of cameras didn't alter how he behaved, not even during surgery.

Johns Hopkins Hospital officials said after imagethe mostly positive feedback they received following the first documentary, also produced by Wrong, they had few reservations about opening their corridors for a second time.
