Imagine a world where disease could be eradicated by an injection of tiny robots the size of molecules. That is the hope offered by nanotechnology - the science of microscopically small machines. But others fear nanotechnology could lead to a non-biological cancer - where swarms of tiny nanobots come together and literally devour human flesh. Sounds like science fiction? It certainly did, until a brilliant young scientist called Hendrik Schoen seemed to bring it a step closer.

Almost all modern medicine relies on our ability to stop dangerous bacteria in their tracks. But over the years, our overuse of antibiotics has helped breed a dangerous collection of bacteria that have become increasingly resistant to these drugs. These superbugs are putting patients at risk of succumbing to diseases like tuberculosis or gangrene. This program travels to the front line of the war against bacteria. From the ancient caves of New Mexico to the sewers of Karachi, it highlights the work that hopes to stop the superbugs in their tracks.
