This Day in History: Centennial of the Spanish Influenza Outbreak
Spanish Flu: The Forgotten Fallen
During the spring and summer of 1918, a deadly strain of fatal influenza spread havoc across the world. Set against the background of the Armistice in November 1918, as exhausted soldiers return home from four years of war, this original drama tells the little-known story of Dr James Niven and his heroic efforts to combat the Spanish Influenza pandemic as it spread through the city of Manchester. Thanks to unique research and James Niven's own documented accounts, history specialists Hardy Pictures have crafted this moving and timely story of individual heroism, medical ingenuity and a race against time.
