Nightingales

Plot

Trainee nurses at St. Margaret’s EE were known as Nightingales. The series follows several of these trainees Smiley Smith, Betsy Cloud, Fiona Kennedy and Edna Pierce who had all met when they started their training. Edna doesn’t fit in with the rest of the girls and tries to cheat on her final exams. She is replaced by Lee Lan. The girls return in sequels. In “Nightingales 4” the friends have gone their separate ways after their training is complete, but they come together again to try and stop the closure of St. Margarets.

  1. Nightingales 2 runs from 1468 (Feb. 27 1988) – 1475 (Apr. 16 1988).

    Nightingales 3 runs from 1490 (Jul. 30 1988) – 1499 (Oct. 1 1988).

    Nightingales 4 runs from 1522 (Mar. 11 1989) – 1532 (May 20 1989), or 1533 (May 27 1989), or 1534 (Jun. 3 1989).

  2. Due to my recent research work on Judy in the British Library I can now clarify that Nightingales 4 ends in 1533 (May 27 1989).
