Casualty has been named as the longest-running primetime medical drama in TV history by the Guinness World Records 2011 Edition.

The programme, which recently began its 25th series, was also named as the longest-running emergency medical drama. With over 700 episodes broadcast since its launch in 1986, it surpasses other dramas such as ER, Grey's Anatomy and its own spinoff Holby City.

Speaking about the recognition, the show's executive producer Belinda Campbell said: "It is an absolute thrill to be able to call Casualty the world's longest-running primetime hospital drama.

"It's a great testament to the hard work and expertise of the casts and crews over the years that Casualty is now its 25th year and still in such fantastically good health."
