Synopsis


A powerful and poignant tribute, marking the 70th anniversary of the NHS.


Fifty years ago artist, visionary and writer John Berger and Swiss photographer Jean Mohr published A Fortunate Man.


What they revealed about the life of English country GP John Sassall remains as fresh, urgent and relevant in 2018.


We follow two narratives, the life of Dr John Sassall, culminating in his suicide in 1982 and the story of a doctor's daily routine today - woven together to compare and contrast the ways in which doctors worked then and now.


Through a combination of Berger's words, Mohr's images, archive film footage and contemporary reportage, New Perspectives collaborate with writer and theatre-maker Michael Pinchbeck to create a new multi-media performance that takes the pulse of the NHS today.
