Programme Five: Measles - The Dormant Killer
For hundreds of years the Measles virus was viewed as a common childhood illness. In reality many young lives were lost each year to the disease. In the 1980s a vaccine was finally made available to children in Ireland, but for some it came too late.
The programme tells the story of two fathers, Brendan Prendergast of Dublin and Dumitru Pop from Romania, whose lives were changed forever by the disease.
