Movie Synopsis:

The Dirty War on the NHS is the new documentary from renowned BAFTA and Emmy-winning filmmaker and journalist John Pilger. "This film is a tribute to a unique institution," says Pilger at the start of The Dirty War, which is about threatened democracy. Above all, it is a warning. Pilger investigates the dismantling "by stealth" of the National Health Service, "a last bastion of true public service".
