Summary

The documentary exploring health care before the arrival of the NHS concludes, revealing how Victorian hospitals - often seen as a last resort for the destitute rather than a place of healing - transformed into the modern centres of medicine they have become today. Includes archive footage and first-hand accounts from patients, doctors and nurses from an era when infectious disease was virtually untreatable. Narrated by Robert Winston.
