Finding a cure for the disease or protection from it has enabled empires to grow, the Panama Canal to be built and fortunes to be made. Malaria has been blamed on water, air, evil spirits, internal imbalances. We know now what causes malaria but we are fast losing control of it again as the parasite adapts and resists.This series will also challenge preconceptions about the “scientific” approach. It starts in prehistory and ends in the present, with each episode encapsulating the culture, beliefs and imperatives that defined the approach to malaria taken during that period.",
