Series

Following a line of enquiry, these documentaries enable us to understand the pandemic - its origin, its mode of propagation, its fatal consequences and the ways in which we can protect ourselves from it.

A catastrophe is coming. And yet the whole world, its people and leaders, are carrying on as if nothing has happened. We are looking away, closing our ears, not wanting to hear the prophets of doom.
Bird flu, however, is a very real threat, forecast by the least worried of scientists to arrive in the next twenty years, and possibly well before then. The estimated figures total 20 million deaths throughout the world. Suddenly these figures remind us of ancient plagues which we thought had died out.
Despite his great knowledge, man is still just as vulnerable in the face of illness. And even the most sophisticated of States does not possess sufficient drug stocks to guarantee the survival of its citizens.
