INSIDE HARLEY STREET (3 x 60’)
This series documents Harley Street and the surrounding medical neighbourhood - a unique grid of streets in central London. The series looks inside the hidden and privileged world of private medicine, to tell the stories of the people who conduct their business behind the facades of the area’s elegant Georgian terraces. Laced with humour and studded with historical facts, the series combines observational narratives with interviews to tell stories from both the patients’ and doctors’ points of view. The films examine our attitudes to health and question what happens when the patient is a customer and health is a consumer product that can be bought and paid for.
