AWESOME mini-series
18 October 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I first saw this mini-series when I was quite young, around 12, and have watched it many times since then. I wish I could find a copy today. The mini-series chronicles the discovery of insulin, led by researchers Frederick Banting and his assistant, Charles Best, and though the subject matter may sound boring, it is gripping story of struggle and determination, highlighted by several excellently-characterized, well-developed personalities. Renowned Canadian actor R.H. Thomson is brilliant in the role of Frederick Banting. The supporting cast is full of stellar performers and the writing is superb. An all-around top-notch Canadian production!
