The Documentary Bedlam – The History of Bethlem Hospital reveals how and why ‘Bedlam’ came to stand for the very idea of madness itself. Satirised over centuries as both a ‘human zoo’ and a ‘university of madness’, and for 100 years was one of London’s leading tourist attractions.
Despite its incredible 750-year history as the World’s most notorious mental institution and the word’s everyday use in the English Language, Bedlam’s story has never been told before on film or television.
Bedlam features lucid interviews with leading historians and authors, including Jonathan Andrews, Catharine Arnold and Mike Jay, and uses genre-bending drama to illustrate compelling stories of the lives of key characters inside the hospital.
Drawing from historical diaries, poetry and verbatim accounts inspired by visits to Bedlam, this film focuses on Bedlam’s role in holding up a mirror to ‘sane’ society to question who were really the mad ones - those inside the asylum or those outside..?
