"History books tell us that Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin, but that's not the whole story. Breaking The Mould: The Story Of Penicillin uncovers the forgotten team involved in the development and manufacture of the drug that transformed medicine. Dominic West (The Wire, The Devil's Whore) stars as straight-talking Australian scientist Professor Howard Florey. Whilst it is widely recognised that Alexander Fleming was the man who discovered penicillin, the truth is a bit more complicated than that, and the extraordinary story of Professor Florey is hardly known. Set against the background of the early years of the Second World War, this factually-based drama shows how it was Professor Florey and his team who persevered against incredible odds to make penicillin an applicable medicine, whilst refusing to patent it for commercial gain. A revealing, poignant and witty character-driven account of a miraculous scientific breakthrough, Breaking The Mould tells the little known story of Professor Florey and the team of unsung heroes from the prestigious Dunn School of Pathology at Oxford University who were behind the discovery of penicillin, which changed the world of medicine forever"-ABC TV website.
