EVCOM and the BFI have come together to create a short film celebrating the NHS today, and throughout history. EVCOM Board Member and filmmaker Tim Langford (BBC, Channel 4) has directed the film, which features historic footage from the BFI National Archive. Iain Glen (Game of Thrones) reads Michael Rosen's (We're Going On a Bear Hunt) famous poem, 'These Are The Hands', which he wrote to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the NHS.

The film is in aid of the NHS Charities Together Appeal. Please donate to support the people working on the frontline during this crisis.
