One-off

Cholera and tuberculosis were raging in Europe at the end of the 19th century. Renowned chemist Louis Pasteur and young country doctor Robert Koch competed in the discovery of the microbe. The Frenchman and German’s duel revolutionized medicine and helped rid the world of these killer diseases.

At the end of the 19th century, with Europe in the throes of industrial revolution, epidemics of plague, cholera and tuberculosis continued unchecked, with scholars unable to explain how they spread.
 
Two visionaries from very different backgounds – the Frenchman Louis Pasteur, a chemist with a log career behind him, and the German Robert Koch, a young country doctor - would transform medicine by understanding these infectious diseases that were decimating humanity.
