In 1941, Penicillin was first used to save a human life. In the half century since, antibiotics have revolutionized medicine, adding ten years to the life expectancy of everyone. But there are ominous signs that the revolution is at an end. This DVD chronicles the discovery of these miracle medicines, their introduction and rapid growth, and their murky future. John Swan of the Food and Drug Administration offers a detailed look at their astonishing effects on human life in just a few brief decades, all but eliminating the threat from numerous diseases. Go into the labs where new antibiotics are being developed, and see why many researchers are concerned that their time as a "magic bullet" may be expiring. And hear from experts like Martin Weiss of the N.Y. Hall of Science and Stuart Levy from Tufts, who are working to stay ahead of the new threats to antibiotics' place as one of mankind's greatest accomplishments.
