Film: The Centre (1948)

How was health and wellbeing promoted before the NHS, and what implications might it have for today? This film from 1948, made by noted documentarist Paul Rotha, will explore some of these issues. The ‘Peckham Experiment’ in South East London ran from 1930 to 1950, aiming to create ‘positive heath’ in the community, not just the absence of illness. Lesley Hall and Jack Czauderna from the Pioneer Health Foundation will discuss the history of the health centre and the exciting new project with the South London Gallery which explores the relevance of its legacy for today.”
