Throughout the history of mankind, the business of curing, understanding, and treating disease has taken a rather peculiar path. Some procedures have proven to be very efficient while other methods could only have made things worse for the patient. This program traces the history of bacteria and antibiotics. From Alexander Fleming to "super drugs" for superbugs, have these cures led to bacteria becoming more resistant and harder to kill? What else will the future bring? A cure against the flu?
