Daily until October 2019
This ambitious 365-day digital commission by Jordan Baseman marks the centenary of the 1918 influenza pandemic, known as the Spanish Flu.
Commissioned by Wellcome, Radio Influenza explores and interprets how news, rumour and health information and dis-information were shared and experienced through newspaper accounts at the time.
Over the course of a year, a daily audio piece captures the everyday lived experience of the 1918 influenza pandemic, which killed at least 50 million people worldwide. Listeners can follow the reports through a dedicated website, podcast, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter feeds.
