Health Before the NHS

Episode 1. The Road to Recovery

About this programme

In the first of a two-part documentary, Robert Winston explores the treatment of ailments before the advent of the National Health Service, revealing that few could afford to seek medical attention in the early 20th century. Archive footage and personal testimonies tell how ordinary people, doctors and nurses coped with a system ill-equipped to deal with sickness and disease in the years preceding the Second World War.
