The Virus That Cures - Bacteriophage

This is an interesting documentary about superbugs, such as MRSA, antibiotic resistance and Russia's research into bacteriophage (viruses that attack bacteria) as a treatment for people with bacterial-related diseases. This video was produced in 1997 by the BBC, but despite the air date, there is still a lot of useful information contained in the dialogue, especially since phage therapy is largely overlooked in Western Europe and the Americas to this day.
