PENICILLIN: THE MAGIC BULLET
The untold story of the history and making of Penicillin.
In 1940, as World War Two raged, Australian Howard Florey and team at Oxford University made the worlds first antibiotic. They used old bedpans, parts of a broken telephone and scrounged dairy equipment. Penicillin was a lifesaver, but its discovery was a trial of penury, character assassination and spotlight snatching. Using dramatic re-enactments and Florey's own archive film, this documentary tells the true story.
An intriguing and captivating watch guaranteed to keep you hooked from start to end.
