FRONTLINE reporter David Hoffman investigates the alarming rise in hospitals, communities, and across the globe of untreatable infections.

Without swift action, the miracle age of antibiotics could be coming to an end.

Must Read

By John T

from Santa Fe, New Mexico

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Hunting the Nightmare Bacteria DVD:

Nearly all of us around today assume that when we gen an infection, the doctor, with antibiotics, will cure it. Folks over 70, however, remember the days before antibiotics, when diseases like polio, TB, typhoid, killed friends and neighbors regularly. When the police posted quarantine signs on people's front doors, and prohibited the entire household from leaving the house. When schools shut down, and so did municipal swimming pools. Well, all the evidence is that those days are coming back, with the rise of antibiotic - resistant bacteria. And nobody wants to admit it, and a lot of them are in total denial. This DVD is extremely well-done, and a must-see. JAT

A Must See Documentary For all Schools a

By Sun Dance

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Hunting the Nightmare Bacteria DVD:

Hunting the Nightmare Bacteria is an excellent Educational documentary. It brings to light the mechanisms inherent to the causation of bacterial-dug-resistance and the extremely difficult task of combating drug-resistance. IT is highly educational and even any lay person could understand. I recommend it for all educational institutions.
