In popular culture
- Northwick Park is the setting for the Channel 4 situation comedy "Green Wing". Most of the filming for the series was carried out in the working hospital rather than on sound stages. This means that the series has afar more authentic feel than many other programmes set in hospitals. Additionally a number of ordinary, unsuspecting members of the public can be spotted in the background clearly unaware of the filming that is going on.
