Mad Cow Disease: The Great British Beef Scandal (2019)

The story of Britain's biggest ever food scandal. Since 1996, almost 200 people have died from Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, whilst BSE has been responsible for the death of over four million cows. It has cost the NHS over a billion pounds and virtually destroyed the British beef industry in the 1990s. A story of greed, corruption and catastrophic political misjudgement by the then Conservative government can be found beneath the statistics. This film pieces together a forgotten chapter of our recent history, with access to all of the politicians, scientists and families who have been defined by this epidemic.
