brilliant and very moving
25 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As usual Bill Paterson gives a wonderful, moving performance in this all too short a drama. One sometimes needs reminding how lucky we are these days when it comes to living standards and public health. It certainly showed in graphic detail the terrible, painful death suffered by people during the epidemic that raged between October 1918 and April 1919, and the fact that many victims were young men, returning from the horrors of World War 1, made it all the more poignant and tragic. In spite of the bleak subject matter, this is definitely an hour well spent and I thoroughly recommend it.

BBC4 should be applauded for showing such drama documentaries, and the fact there were no adverts to burst onto the screen at moments of particular emotion, thus spoiling the mood, made it so much better.
