Society's history examined in exciting new documentary
5th December 2011
Wednesday 7th December marks the unveiling of an exciting new documentary showcasing the history of Benenden Healthcare – ‘Ahead of its Time’.
'Ahead of its Time' is a new look at the origins of the Society, produced by independent filmmakers, Trafalgar Productions. It is a gripping documentary which reveals the tale behind Charles Garland's first historic steps towards founding what was to become Benenden Healthcare Society.
The compelling tale of how he made affordable, life-saving treatment available to co-workers with tuberculosis is as relevant now as it was then and his ground-breaking model is still in use today. Garland's legacy has continued to grow and develop into a mutual health and wellbeing organisation with a membership of over 900,000 people.
On Wednesday 7th December, you can watch an exclusive preview to ‘Ahead of its Time’ at 09:30 either on our Facebook page or at Studiotalk TV
