The Screen Guide

In 1994 a deadly virus struck in suburban Brisbane killing a horse trainer and fourteen of his horses. The outbreak bamboozled everyone and there was a scramble to uncover the cause. Initially thought to be foul play in the racing scene, rumours and accusations were rampant. In a dark room at the Australian Animal Health Laboratory in Geelong, scientists looked at the image in front of them and knew if was dangerous. Outbreaks of Hendra are recurring and although the disease is slow to move it is lethal. The next big virus is around the corner, it might be just as lethal but able to move faster; a devastating combination. The Hendra story has told us we need to be ready.
