Our NHS @ 70

Directed by Nicolas Kent

★★★★ The Guardian
★★★★ Daily Telegraph
★★★★ Financial Times
★★★★ The Independent
★★★★ Time Out
★★★★ The Stage

Mark Thomas is 54, the NHS is 70. UK national average life expectancy is 84. If Mark makes it to 84 the NHS will be 100… What will they both look like?

Based on a series of interviews with leading experts and residencies in hospitals and surgeries, Mark explores our NHS to see where we are, where we are going and where we should be.

★★★★ Impassioned mixture of reportage and storytelling
—The Stage
★★★★ A remarkably fluent, unsentimental, human piece of theatre

★★★★ Thomas’s wide-eyed astonishment is infectious
—The Guardian
★★★★ Impassioned and informative look at where the NHS is at right now
