Celebrating 70 years of the NHS, The NHS: A People’s History is a three-part series presented by Alex Brooker and tells the story of the NHS through the voices of the people whose lives it has affected, from its birth in 1948 to the present day. In each episode, patients and staff from all over the country dig out and share their treasured mementoes to tell deeply personal stories that chart the highs and lows of the National Health Service’s 70-year history.
