The Dirty War on the National Health Service
"It's the Economy, Stupid!" • 1h 45m
Directed by John Pilger • Documentary • 2019 • 106 minutes
Britain's National Health Service, the NHS, was the world's first universal public health service. Designed to give millions of people "freedom from fear" following World War II, the NHS today is under threat of being sold off and converted to a free market model inspired by America's disastrous health insurance system, which results in the unnecessary death every year of an estimated 45,000 people.
Filmed in Britain and the United States just prior to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, this timely and compelling documentary by BAFTA and Emmy award-winning journalist John Pilger reveals what may be the last battle to preserve the most fundamental human right of all.
