Channel 4 orders NHS coronavirus doc
The UK is on lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic
UK commercial broadcaster Channel 4 has greenlit a documentary that will follow the NHS as it responds to the coronavirus pandemic, with individual members of the health service doing the filming.
From London-based prodco Story Films, the team behind Channel 4’s Losing It: Our Mental Health Emergency, the as-yet-untitled doc will focus on frontline NHS workers.
Inspired by the stories of members of the NHS posted on social media, Story Films is asking willing NHS staff – from doctors and nurses to midwives and porters – to film their lives outside the hospital on their smartphones, so viewers can get the inside track on their experiences.
