February 21, 2003, was just a normal day at Hotel Metropole in Hong Kong - until a guest, infected with SARS, became patient zero for an epidemic that rapidly infected people in dozens of countries around the world. This program - part dramatization, part documentary - illustrates how the SARS virus spread and was gradually contained. In addition, virology experts shed light on topics ranging from the relationship between a defect in the CCR5 gene and viruses such as HIV and bubonic plague; to the resurrection of an extinct retrovirus in order to learn how, long ago, the human immune system defeated it; to the connection between H1N1 Spanish flu and H5N1 avian flu.
