The four-part series aims to tell the social history of Britain through the experience of doctors, teachers, police officers and office workers, using a mixture of archive footage and interviews.
Producers are looking for retired and practising doctors employed anytime from the 1950s onwards to reveal the social changes they have witnessed. All interviews will be conducted over the telephone and will be confidential.
Topics producers want to cover include how the doctor-patient relationship has changed, if doctors are as well respected as they used to be and if British attitudes to contraception, abortion, death and birth have changed over the past 50 years. It also plans to explore how consumerism and patient choice have affected doctors.
Producer Shane Stickels said: ‘It is history through ordinary people, finding stories that are funny, shocking, revealing, and give us a human everyday way into examining social changes we have all taken for granted. We want to spark debate about how social change has influenced the role of the doctor.’
