A one-hour television documentary for the National Geographic’s Riddles of the Dead Series profiling the search to resurrect the deadly strain of the influenza virus that killed over 40 million people in 1918.


 In Plague Hunters, we join two teams of scientists as they race to find, identify, and reconstruct the DNA of history’s most lethal plague. Only by reconstructing the virus can scientists hope to create a vaccine to combat it.
