Edward Jenner: The Man Who Cured Smallpox (DVD)
Release Date: 08/28/07
1798 was an important year for Edward Jenner, a country doctor from Berkley in Gloucestershire. Already a fellow of the Royal society after discovering the anti-social nesting behavior of cuckoos, Jenner published a paper documenting his success using the mild cowpox virus to immunize his patients against smallpox. This program examines his life and achievements. Follow in Jenner's footsteps around the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside, the places of his childhood, fossil hunts, and nature studies. See the London hospital where he trained in the latest surgical procedures of the day, before returning to The Chantry, his beloved country home, now the Edward Jenner Museum.
