2-DVD Set!
A riveting new documentary that chronicles 5,000 years in the history of medicine, from the magical ground breaking moments to the dark hours where medicine takes a turn in the wrong direction.

A top flight co-production of several prominent television companies with major motion picture production values, this is the first time such an elaborate series on the art of healing has been produced as family entertainment.

Editor's Note
Although medicine has undoubtably done more good than harm, this exploratory program takes a look at both the scientific blunders and the incredible achievements that have been made in the field.
