John Pilger: The Dirty War On the NHS – 2 August 2020 – 2/8/2020 – August 2 – Sunday – SBS
John Pilger’s new documentary, The Dirty War on the NHS, goes to the heart of the struggle for democracy today. 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, 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 death every year of an estimated 45,000 people. Now President Trump says the NHS is on the table in any future trade deal with America. Filmed in Britain and the United States, this timely, compelling documentary touches us all and reveals what may be the last battle to preserve the most fundamental human right.
