PREVIEW: Inside Britain's Vaccine Triumph, Channel 4

Channel 4 tells the inside story of the government's Vaccine Taskforce - the crack team responsible for finding, funding and procuring Covid vaccines, in one of the biggest public health gambles in UK government history.

For the first time on television, this specialist team of experts, led by pharmaceutical venture capitalist Kate Bingham, give a blow-by-blow account of the race against time to secure the right vaccines as UK death rates soared.

Over the critical six-month period from May to December last year, they rapidly assessed the potential of hundreds of Covid-19 vaccines, gambling hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayers' money on vaccines before they knew for certain if any of them actually worked.

Members of the team reveal their frustration at European governments and their treatment of the AstraZeneca supply issues, and the controversy over the link to potentially fatal blood clots.

Jabbed! Inside Britain's Vaccine Triumph airs Monday 10th May at 10pm on Channel 4.
