Poet, playwright and novelist Owen Sheers will talk about his film-poem, To Provide All People. Written by Owen, To Provide All People charts the emotional and philosophical map of what defines the NHS and the personal experiences that lie at the heart of the service; from patients to surgeons, porters to midwives.
Owen will talk about the background interviews and inspirations which he used to create his latest work, and then sign copies of the book.
Michael Sheen, Tamsin Grieg, Martin Freeman and Meera Syal are amongst the all-star cast of BBC Wales’ landmark television drama commission as it celebrates the 70th anniversary of the NHS. The programme will air on BBC Wales on June 28th – details here.
To Provide All People tells the story of a single day in the NHS, from dusk to dawn, with a single hospital at its heart.
