Essential viewing for any science nut
27 November 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

An absolute gem of a series. I remember it well, viewing it during the early years of my medical training. It was certainly released on Betamax at one stage but appears to have not had a DVD release.

Inspirational, historically correct with the usual effective BBC dramatic edge. Anyone with an interest in science, particularly microbiology would find this enormously entertaining. Reminiscent of those old biographical movies from the 50's and 60's re Pasteur, Curie and Ehrlich

Can anyone suggest how the BBC can be encouraged to release this fantastic series on DVD. Should not be left hidden away in a vault.
