Everyone should see this excellent film!
24 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A quality drama as one would expect from the cast list dealing with actual events and almost a lone voice in the UK (it has been shown regularly by the Beeb) about what might be around the corner for us! On 18th Sept the USA had its sixth annual Preparedness Planning Day but in the UK the Civil Servants are determined to keep a low profile for fear of causing us to panic... Set in 1918 Manchester this film is pretty accurate in showing how people coped but also the poverty to which most were used in those days. We are used to luxury and 24 hr resupply by road which will be a challenge in our populace society. Dr Niven is shown applying basic principles - the big one being reduce contact between people - and the fatality rate in Manchester was far lower than elsewhere. I wonder who will be our Dr Nivens and doubt it will be the government medical officers currently saying no need to worry about the Kuwaiti man flown to London for traetment of a new SARS like coronavirus because he (or someone?) could pay for it...quote:

Prof John Oxford, a virology expert at Queen Mary, University of London, said he felt "somewhat relaxed" about the news (of the UK fatality from an unknown virus)

I advise everyone to watch this both as a quality gripping film and to ponder the lessons that have been forgotten - even if only in memory of a true public servant!
