Surviving Covid

Four patients lie in comas in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at King’s College Hospital in south London in March 2020. Each one has been struck down by Covid-19 during Britain’s first surge. This intimate, feature-length observational documentary follows their stories – and their families’ stories – over six months. At a time when the British public struggles with a second lockdown, the programme is a stark reminder of how frightening and destructive the virus can be.
