I mentioned have mentioned Siddhartha Mukherjee's The Emperor of All Maladies before, but I know that some people find it intimidating not only for the subject matter but also due to its shear size. Well - good news ! Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies, a three part documentary based on the book, is coming to PBS March 30, 31and April 1st (9pm).
THE STORY OF CANCER: The Emperor of All Maladies examines cancer with a cellular biologist’s precision, a historian’s perspective and a biographer’s passion. The series artfully weaves three different films in one: a riveting historical documentary; an engrossing and intimate vérité film; and a scientific and investigative report.
