The NHS segment was the worst, but the whole premise of the show was a pantload. Blake's "green and pleasant land" never existed. Before the industrial revolution most people lived in rural poverty where they had to work dawn to dusk to grind out a meager living.
Haven't any of these allegedly smart "intellectuals" ever asked themselves why millions of people fled farms to go to dirty and dangerous cities to work in the gritty early factories? Because it was better than what they left. Duh.
