COLD CHAIN MIS­SION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS -

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.
