In February 1983, Diana, Princess of Wales, opens a new Intensive Care Unit at Bristol Children's Hospital. Over 2,000 people gather outside the Hospital to see the Princess, and inside she meets patients, staff, children from local schools who have fundraised for the hospital. Diana also receives a teddy bear for the royal nursery and a cot mobile of coloured shapes made by 6 year old patient Katie Harris.
