Preview – Fighting for Air

Dr Xand van Tulleken

As air pollution in the UK has been declared a ‘public health emergency’, Dr Xand van Tulleken has taken the matter into his hands and is testing what we can do about it.

With the help of enthusiasts and sceptics from the Kings Heath community in Birmingham, he stages the first ever large-scale experiment using people power to try and bring about a quantifiable improvement in air quality for a single day. Will his experiment be deemed a success?
