In 2001, an outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease decimated British farming. It broke up communities right across the country, particularly in Devon, Cumbria and the North of England.
The scale of the destruction was completely avoidable. The policy of "slaughtered on suspicion" was a crime.
In 2013, Malcolm Massey and Patrick Henningsen spoke to some of those affected. This documentary was the result of that work. It has never been released to the public, but has been shown at private viewings around the country.
We will be producing an edit for public consumption, but in the meantime, for members only, is the original cut.
