"Mental: a history of the madhouse" available again (briefly)

Mental: a history of the madhouse is "a documentary which tells the fascinating and poignant story of the closure of Britain's mental asylums". It was originally broadcast on 17 May 2010 and in July 2010 was discussed in a posting on the Wellcome Library blog.

The film is now once again available for UK viewers free of charge on the BBC iPlayer for a limited period (11-21 January 2011). The Wellcome Library offers free internet access, so anybody who does not have easy access to the internet and can visit the Wellcome Library may watch the film in the Library free of charge.
