Cancer
The Emperor of All Maladies

A scientist labels each protein in the radio nucleotide sequence of human genes to create a unique DNA profile.

This three-part film tells the comprehensive story of cancer, from its first description in an ancient Egyptian scroll to the gleaming laboratories of modern research institutions. The six-hour film interweaves a sweeping historical narrative with intimate stories about contemporary patients, and an investigation into the latest scientific breakthroughs that may have brought us, at long last, within sight of lasting cures.
