Britain vs Coronavirus: BBC set to tell coronavirus pandemic story through feature length documentary

The film will be directed by James House and the producer is Claire Kavanagh.

BBC is set to produce a feature length, state-of-the-nation documentary titled ‘Britain vs Coronavirus’ to tell the definitive story of the coronavirus pandemic in the nation.

It is said that the broadcaster has commissioned its own BBC Studios Documentary Unit to deliver the documentary.

“Interweaving archive and compelling master interviews with many of the key decision-makers in the crisis, the film will be a forensic retelling of the events of a seismic year in UK history when the coronavirus pandemic struck,” BBC said in a press release posted on its website.

The documentary will explore the impact of the crisis on the NHS, social care, economy, and society as a whole, it is said.

The film will be directed by James House and the producer is Claire Kavanagh.

Britain has so far reported 2,89,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19. Its death toll has crossed 44,600, the world's third highest, behind the US and Brazil.
