COLD CHAIN MISSION
Wednesday, 8.30pm, SBS ONE
It is hard not to be inspired by this brilliant, two-part documentary, which follows actor Ewan McGregor as he travels to remote parts of the globe to deliver precious vaccines to children in need. The routes vaccines travel are known as cold chains because the fragile nature of the medical product means they must be kept cold.
The second half of this special sees McGregor up the Congo River in central Africa. His playful sense of humour makes him an affable host as he encounters unique subcultures and corruption.
