“Doctors’ Diaries,” the 21-year doc project concluding tomorrow on Nova, draws rave reviews from Baltimore Sun TV critic David Zurawik. He writes: “The editing is superb in its fluidity. In fact, I do not believe I have ever seen a PBS documentary that was more perfectly edited. As a viewer, you feel like you are skating along on a perfect sheet of words and imagery, and then, boom, suddenly [producer-director Michael] Barnes stops you in your tracks to make a major point about the price that must be paid to join the medical priesthood.” The project follows seven Harvard Medical School students, beginning in 1987, through their education, internships, professional careers and personal lives.
