A film marking the seventieth anniversary, in 2018, of the birth of the NHS.

A film poem by Owen Sheers, marking the seventieth anniversary, in 2018, of the birth of the NHS, which charts a day in the life of a modern-day regional hospital.

Made in 2018 to mark the 70th anniversary of the birth of the NHS, acclaimed poet Owen Sheers takes us on a journey that weaves the extraordinary story of the birthing of Nye Bevan's vision of free healthcare for all people with personal stories of the NHS in British society today.

Based on scores of interviews with NHS workers - ranging from brain surgeons to cleaners - The NHS: To Provide All People charts the emotional and philosophical map of what defines the NHS and the personal experiences at the heart of the service, and recognises its achievements and the challenges it faces.

From first breath to last, the film poem journeys through the joy, pain, triumph and loss that unites us all in our experiences of health and sickness, birth and death, regardless of race, gender or wealth. Featuring a stellar cast, including Michael Sheen, Eve Myles, Martin Freeman, Sian Phillips, Jonathan Pryce, Celia Imrie, Meera Syal, Susan Wokoma, Michelle Fairley, Rhashan Stone, Michelle Collins and Tamsin Greig.

Lesley Manville on her Oscar nomination, James Bulger's mother Denise Fergus.

Lesley Manville on being Oscar-nominated for her role in Phantom Thread, Denise Fergus remembers her son James Bulger in her book 'I Let Him Go' and hostesses' legal rights.

25-years after the brutal murder of two year old James Bulger, his mother Denise Fergus talks to Jenni about her son's short life and the happiness he brought her family.

Touted as this year's big literary discovery, Imogen Hermes Gowar's debut novel 'The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock' is set in a vibrant Georgian London. Imogen joins Jenni to explain what attracted her to this period and the occasionally perilous world of fantasy and illusion of courtesans and mermaids.

An undercover report by the Financial Times newspaper has exposed the alleged sexual harassment of hostesses at a charity dinner organised by The Presidents Club. The Club, which has operated to raise money for charity for 33 years, has decided to close down after their were reports of high powered men groping hostesses, hostesses being told to wear skimpy clothes, matching underwear and being forced to sign non-disclosure orders. Jenni speaks to Emma Webster, a solicitor who specialises in employment law about the legal rights of hostesses.

Actor Lesley Manville has enjoyed a hugely successful 45-year career. Now, age 61, she's been nominated for her first Oscar for her role in the film Phantom Thread. She plays the steely sister to Daniel Day-Lewis's controlling dress designer, a man who exerts a dark, emotionless control over the young woman in his life. Lesley Manville joins Jenni to talk about the film and the difficult relationships it portrays.
