Cows, Cash & Coverups: Investigating vCJD


I’m shooting my first feature length documentary and I’d appreciate any support in funding or publicising the project.


Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (vCJD), the human form of BSE (Mad Cow Disease) is a disease that has a long incubation period, spanning several decades, with government scientists warning over a potential “second wave” of cases.

BSE is still being detected on farms in Britain, Ireland & America, with the latest case found in Ireland as recently as this month.

The aim of this film is to highlight the story of the victims of vCJD, to examine the Governments handling of the BSE crises and to explore the ethics of the farming and food industry.

As the recent horse meat scandal highlighted – do we honestly know what’s going in our food?
