The Dirty War on the NHS is the new documentary from renowned BAFTA and Emmy-winning film-maker and journalist John Pilger.
A tribute to a unique institution, and a stark warning about the threats facing our democracy. Pilger’s film takes a deep dive into the dismantling, by stealth, of the National Health Service – an institution the filmmaker describes as “a last bastion of true public service”.
