My updated 1-hour version of ‘GROUNDSWELL: THE GRASSROOTS BATTLE FOR THE NHS’ has been given a wildcard entry at the Byline Festival in Sussex next Monday 27th, 11.15am – 12.45pm inc Q & A. It’s one of 20 docs being screened.
The last-minute invitation came via media journos hangout The Frontline Club, partners in the Festival, which it describes as ‘four days of independent journalism, comedy, music, dance, workshops and free speech for anyone concerned.’ With John Cleese, Gary Lineker and Carole Cadwalldr, the brilliant journo who exposed the Cambridge Analytica scam, amongst its acts it sounds an interesting, eclectic and fun do: http://www.bylinefestival.com
Getting the ear of opinion formers to start taking on the mainstream media’s constant misrepresentation of the ‘NHS crisis’ is now a priority. The Frontline Club has decamped to the Festival for the weekend, so I’m looking to get some hacks’ interest there.
My precis of campaigners’ take on what’s happening to the NHS, the whys and the wherefores, can be found below in The True Story Behind The NHS Crisis.
