We follow a team of medics in their fight against tropical diseases both in the UK and across the developing world. Cases span from returning holidaymakers experiencing terrifying symptoms to entire villages brought to their knees by sudden viral outbreaks. Stories include patients with trypanosomiasis which sends its victims into a zombie-like trance to maggots laying eggs in a holidaymaker's ear. The result is breath-taking medical detective work, gripping human stories, gruesome illnesses and an epic, global battle to save countless millions of lives.
