BBC News "The future's not cancelled" by BBC Creative

BBC News discusses the human impact of the coronavirus pandemic, via the poetic stylings of Rakaya Esime Fetuga.

The 40-second spot shows young people as they describe how the coronavirus pandemic has affected them, as well as their hopes for the future.

The ad launched today across BBC channels and iPlayer, while a wider campaign includes conversations between the younger people featured in the ad and BBC journalists as they discuss topics including mental health, disability and unemployment.

It was created by Jules Middleton and Peigh Asante, and directed by Stella Scott through Pulse Films.
