Catch Me If You Can: The History of Epidemics

Play

11:00

Bubonic plague wiped out nearly half of Europe, but our own continent is no stranger to epidemics. Smallpox decimated the native population; yellow fever, cholera and Spanish flu took out millions more. Now, with the resurgence of polio, ebola, mumps and measles, we’ll look at how diseases affect culture and if modern medicine can stop them.
