"Pandemic: A Possible Look at the Future"

BBC has produced a 1hr. 28 min. "docu-drama" entitled "Pandemic: A Possible Look at the Future".

It shows how one individual, infected with the H5N1 virus, could affect every nation on earth within a matter of weeks. It makes the plausibility of such an event very real.

The documentary portion of this video uses the latest scientific research, presented by experts in the field, to explain how the virus operates, how it mutates, and how we are at risk.

The dramatization shows in a powerful way how realistic the threat is, and how ill-prepared we are at present.

If you take the time to watch the video at the following URL you will have a clear picture of what we are facing:
