Mark Thomas is best known for his political activism, but in recent years he's been telling more personal stuff like how his dad's been battling a degenerative disease.

This year he's been thinking about the NHS, and how the approaching life expectancy age of 84 is slowly creeping up on him. When he finally hits 84 the NHS will be 100. What will they both look like then?

The show is built around a series of interviews that Thomas did with medical experts in and on the NHS, and uses his own demise to explore what's going right, what's going wrong, and how can it get better?

The Independant★★★★ – "Engaging and informative" The Guardian★★★★ – "Thomas' wide-eyed astonishment is infectious"
