Australasian Science: Australia's authority on science since 1938


A five part web-series about a deadly virus, engineered in a lab, and the people at the frontline fighting bioterrorism.

To promote its new course, Bioterrorism and Health Intelligence, the University of NSW' School of Public Health and Community Medicine has created a five-part web-series called Pandemic. The series, directed by Nick Hunter and starring Michael Booth (Wonderland), is about a deadly virus unleashed on the public of the fictional nation of 'Mendona' and the hunt to find those responsible.

The UNSW course is for professionals involved in any aspect of bioterrorism preparedness and response, who wish to be intellectually challenged, to think outside the square, to gain insight into quantum changes in science which pose a biosecurity risk, to understand the different perspectives of sectors involved in response, and to gain new critical skills which can be applied in their professional practice.
