CORONAVIRUS: HOW BRITAIN IS CHANGING
FOR DISPATCHES, CHANNEL 4
As coronavirus takes hold, this film investigates the long-term effects of the outbreak and asks how the deadly Covid-19 is changing Britain in the long term. As the death toll rises, we look at everything from seismic changes in economic policy to shifts in the way we view and treat other people – from a drop in pollution to the widening of the gaps between rich and poor, young and old and the North and South. This film asks what a post-Covid-19 Britain, torn apart by the disease, might look like. As news outlets inevitably cover the day-to-day, we take a step back and look at a virus which has the potential not just to change the way we live in the short term – but forever.
