A disturbing, must-see insider’s exposé of the covert privatisation of the UK’s revered National Health Service (NHS) under successive governments and the battle by ordinary citizens across the social and political spectrum to save the NHS and British democracy from the grasp of US and global free-marketeers who have dominated society for over 30 years. A roller-coaster David and Goliath story on the pulse of our times.

John Furse’s moving, gripping and revelatory personal account of an emerging ‘people power’ movement includes Jeremy Corbyn’s rise from little known Member Of Parliament to leader of the Labour Party, the first-ever strike by NHS doctors, the shocks of the Brexit referendum and Trump’s election as US President, and a powerful contribution from world-famous physicist Professor Stephen Hawking. “An urgent, compelling film that needs to be seen widely” (The Independent, July 6th 2018).

REVIEWS:
“A very important documentary film. The people and the commitment that they are making is fantastic and very moving.” (John McCarthy, broadcaster & author)
“Evokes a deeply felt sense of loss for one of the great humanitarian achievements of the past century while at the same time exploring the increasing disillusionment with the effects of globalisation on our democracy.” (Dr Austin Connor GP, North Devon)
“Highly individual, remarkably sophisticated…It is rare to see a film that explores complex issues and attitudes with such clarity. Extraordinary…Moving and humbling” (Archie Tait, ex-ICA Cinema Director)
“Goes a long way to explain the Corbyn phenomenon” (Lord David Owen, ex-Labour Minister Of Health)
“Inspiring.” (Iain Softley, cinema film director)
“The film was awesome and deserves to be seen all over the country. It had a massive impact here on the Isle Of Wight!…It gets its message across without political favouritism.” (Christine Lightbody, Newport, Isle of Wight)
“Fast-paced and informative…A powerful and accessible film that should be distributed widely.” (Mark Kidel, arts documentary filmmaker and journalist)
“Moved me greatly, from the verge of tears to righteous anger.” (Ian Hart, actor)
“Remarkable…invaluable.” (Stephen Ridley, Uckfield, East Sussex)
“Even on the third viewing I was still riveted by the startling information concerning the destruction of the NHS.” (Jill Rock, London)

DONATIONS:
The film, with most of its filiming done by its director on cheap domestic camcorders, was made for less than £8,000 from donations. Director/producer/writer John Furse not only worked unpaid but also spent a substantial amount of his savings over his 4 years making of the film. Added to that is all the unpaid work of his central collaborator Gus Coral and other colleagues like leading veteran UK documentarists David Naden and Charles Stewart. The costs incurred during the production amount to over £60,000. Any donations exceeding the £1.95 viewing charge by those who feel their work merits this will be hugely appreciated. And, more urgently, it will help John Furse and his colleagues continue their contributions to the campaign to Save Our NHS.
