I thought PBS did a good job last week with their Rx for Survival: A Global Health ChallengeNational Geographic Channel is getting into the game.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13I'm not even sure I have this channel, so I can't say how well they stick to the facts or go off into a more, erm, "creative" area to appease viewers. I see that the show just prior to the Ebola segment is:
***WORLD PREMIERE** "MicroKillers: Ebola" at 9P et/pt
It's called "the death of a thousand cuts" because the deadly Ebola virus tears you apart from the inside. NGC explores the horrors of an Ebola infection and what could happen if the virus came to America.
***WORLD PREMIERE*** "MicroKillers: Super Flu" at 10P et/pt
Are we prepared for a global Asian bird flu epidemic? Follow a fictional traveler who unknowingly spreads the disease through casual social encounters. The horror and ease of infection are chilling reality checks.
Explorer: "Search for Adam" at 8P et/ptAnyhoo, could be interesting viewing, if you can pull yourselves away from "Desperate Housewives" for a night.
Could we all be descendants of Adam? If he existed, who was he, where did he live, and what did he look like? The answers will surprise you.
