Michael Mosley vs The Superbugs

Last night the documentary “Michael Mosley vs The Superbugs aired on BBC4 (still available for a month on iPlayer for people in the UK). Anne Leonard, PhD and now postdoc with Will Gaze, is featured with her ‘Beach Bum‘ study (see also here). I can very briefly be seen too, collecting seaweeds for antimicrobial assays (something we need to finally publish this year!). I found being filmed for tv pretty brutal (trying to explain pretty complex science whilst squatting in a rock pool in a downpour with just an hour of filming), so that the interview did not make the final cut was probably for the best! Anyway, have a look, there is lots of interesting research that could hopefully help solve one of the most pressing health care problems of our time.

    I loved it! I thought that the programme was great. I particularly appreciated the gender and age balance of the scientists interviewed, so it was great that it was Anne (young woman) who did the interview.
