An indepth look at the most recent outbreak of one of the worst diseases on the planet- and the history of Ebola itself from the first documented outbreak. I do think the subject matter might have benefitted from being expanded from one hour to two, but that said, this is presented in the customary professional manner PBS uses. It's also very informative, perhaps too unsettling for some viewers, as it examines how tough the virus is, and how drastic its effects are on its victims. The commentary from experts and from those who have managed to survive a bout with the virus are quite enlightening.
