This documentary is the unlikely and chaotic story of how an Australian created the greatest medicine in the world. This documentary looks at how unlocking the secret of the unstable penicillium mould was "like trying to herd butterflies" and tracks the two strenuous years it took, with almost no money and only basic equipment, for the Oxford team to extract a thimble-full of powder."--SBS-TV.
